“Just when people think the old country blues of the Mid-Atlantic has faded away, along come the wonderful husband and wife duo of Valerie and Ben Turner who are the heirs to the Piedmont blues tradition.” – Frank Matheis, Editor/Publisher of thecountryblues
The Piedmont Bluz acoustic duo is dedicated to the preservation of Country Blues and the Piedmont style and their mission is to help keep this rural, east coast tradition alive by educating audiences about this unique aspect of African American culture through musical entertainment. The husband and wife duo of Valerie and Ben Turner feel that “there are stories to tell, people to remember, and things that must be said” so, in addition to tickling your ears with delightful music, they weave a bit of history into the presentation of each song.
The Turners will play the festival main stage and present at the Roots & Reason stage on Saturday, August 6, 2016.
