The Page Turners are headed by Carolyn Kendrick (Stockton, CA) and Jake Howard (Akron, OH). Winners of the 2016 Freshgrass "Best Duo" award, they met at the Berklee College of Music and perform mostly original acoustic music. "The Page Turners blend their love of bluegrass, whiskey-fueled old-time, and classic country into one big all-purpose seasoning of delicious Roots Music."

"The Page Turners are one of the most exciting young groups to pop up in a long while. Two fantastic players and singers who, together, blow away the typical constraints of a duo and in the variety of their playing, writing and singing create a sound much greater than the sum of the (very talented) parts." — Joe K. Walsh

Control Burn came together in the spring of 2014. After meeting mandolinist Jay Moore at a local jam session in Marietta, Georgia, guitarist Harris Kendrick suggested that they get together with bassist Tyler Kufta. Harris didn't realize that Tyler and Jay actually knew each other, having played together several years before in the renowned Bluegrass Music Program at East Tennessee State University. Against this backdrop of reunion and friendship, the trio met at Tyler's house for an informal jam session. 

All three members quickly became aware of the dynamic musical chemistry between them at this first session, jamming and calling out tunes into the early hours of the morning. The contagious energy created in that first night of playing led them to get together frequently and quickly they realized something special was going on. In other words, they sounded pretty damn good. 

The trio’s diverse interests and influences, from bluegrass and country to blues, jazz and rock, have helped create a sound that is familiar and relatable, yet unexpected and dynamic. They can burn a fiddle tune at a blazing tempo, then turn on a dime and play a haunting waltz, sing a Bakersfield country number, or cover a classic rock song without anything feeling affected or put-on. The freedom of playing in a small group and crossing musical boundary lines has started these three musicians on an exciting journey – and they invite you to come along.
