Octopladd and The Page Turners

Friday, April 21st, 2017 - 7pm


“OctoPladd comprises four of the most exciting instrumental voices now emerging in the acoustic string band world, a collection of monstrous young talent united in their mastery of their craft and their commitment to the improvisatory moment. They’re updating the string band sound, and I’m excited to hear what they come up with!”
— Joe K Walsh

OctoPladd is a band that plays music. Their music is melodious and heartfelt while also funky and occasionally goofy, not unlike their name (a complicated story they’d have to tell you in person). United by their roots in bluegrass, they draw on myriad influences to produce Appalachian melodies tempered with chromaticism and groove. The quartet combines the sweeping lines of Julian Pinelli’s violin with the snap and groove of mandolinist Ethan Setiawan. Sam Leslie adds tasteful guitar sauce, supported by the powerhouse Noah Harrington on bass. They met in Boston’s thriving roots music scene and their hope is to create music with an electric edge to its acousticality.

The Page Turners

"The Page Turners harness the best and deepest parts of bluegrass and old-time sounds as their own unique springboard for some wonderful new music. I love what Carolyn and Jake are doing and can’t wait to hear more!” --Bruce Molsky

The Page Turners, Carolyn Kendrick and Jake Howard, are an award-winning group (2016 Freshgrass Best Duo) who have a strong foothold in the acoustic music scene. They became musical friends as students of Berklee College of Music, and started playing together  through the Berklee American Roots Program. From those experiences, they began to play music together more and grew from goofy friends who loved BBQ and bluegrass, into goofy band mates as well. The Page Turners write sharp and adept original music and put new twists on old favorites. They like to blend their love of bluegrass, whiskey-fueled old-time, country music, swing, and fearless song-writing into one all-purpose seasoning of good ole' fashioned Roots Music.
