The Turino Family Band is back on the patio at the Rose Bowl Tavern
Matt (fiddle, guitar, feet, and vocals) and Tom (banjo, accordions, fiddle, and vocals) have been playing string band, Cajun, and original tunes together for thirty years–since Matt was seven. Around Urbana-Champaign they have been part of the Squeezetones, The Cornstalkers, and the touring contra dance band, Euphor, as well as playing as a duo.
After moving to Kentucky, Tom teamed up with his wife Shannon (guitar, vocals, triangle) to form the core of various bands playing old time and Cajun music. Meanwhile Matt and his partner Claire Johnson (fiddle) began performing in the sterling string trio, Meadowhawk. They also take great pleasure playing together whenever the family gets together.
