“Prepare to be amused, moved, inspired, and entertained – because I’m here to tell you that, all of her other talents aside, Corrina Rose Logston is already one of the most dazzling songwriters working in bluegrass today.” — Jon Weisberger, 2012 IBMA Songwriter of the Year

About Jeremy & Corrina “The Stephens Brothers”
Corrina Rose Logston and Jeremy Stephens are a duo heavily steeped in the sounds of traditional bluegrass and early country music. From heart songs and brother duets of the early Grand Ole Opry era to lively bluegrass tunes and their own original material, their show is sure to keep you entertained. Corrina and Jeremy perform the ballads of bygone days with a haunting authenticity that belies their age, yet they simultaneously breathe new life into the old songs. Their performance blends past and present in a compelling combination of familiar and unique.
Both Corrina and Jeremy have strong individual pedigrees. Jeremy, born and raised in south central Virginia, has worked as banjo player with the Lilly Brothers, as guitarist and singer for the world famous gospel group the Chuck Wagon Gang, and as a multi-instrumentalist on the television show Ray Stevens’ Nashville. He is a true student of old-time, bluegrass, and country music and has won banjo contests all across the country. Corrina, originally from southwestern Illinois, has worked as fiddler and singer with a who’s who of today’s traditional-based bluegrass performers, including David Peterson & 1946, Chris Henry & the Hardcore Grass, and Jim Lauderdale. She is a graduate of Belmont University and has won numerous contests in fiddling and singing as well.
Drawn together by their mutual love for duets, especially the lesser known names in traditional bluegrass and hillbilly music, Corrina and Jeremy have been likened to Reno & Smiley, the Louvin Brothers, and Lulu Belle & Scotty. Their vocal blending and harmony have led to them being dubbed “The Stephens Brothers,” when in fact these only-children are only “kin” through their marriage to one another.
When not touring as a duo, the two can be found performing with their critically-acclaimed bluegrass band High Fidelity or working the Grand Ole Opry with Jesse McReynolds and the Virginia Boys. They currently reside in Nashville, Tennessee.
Together they bring a colorful palate of diverse musical styles with a heart- warming delivery that is sure to delight.
