Gregory Page

Aug 12, Saturday - 5pm
Jade Leaf Stage

Third generation musician Gregory Page was born and grew up in North London surrounded by family members who performed and recorded traditional Irish music. He’s since translated these early experiences into his own musical output as a singer/songwriter.

Page’s grandfather, Dave Page, was a master uilleann piper who played in Leo Rowsome’s famous piping quartet in the 1930s. Dave Page’s Irish dance band, the Siamsa Gael Celidhe Band, made two 78 RPM recordings in the ‘30s, some of the earliest recordings of Irish music. His mother was the lead singer and bass player in the all-girl group, The Beat Chicks, who twice opened for The Beatles.

As a teenager, Page attended Trinity College of Music where he studied classical guitar and composition. At sixteen, he moved to Southern California, where he began writing and recording his own music. As the years passed, Page not only worked on his own projects but also began to work with an eclectic array of artists that included Jason Mraz, John Doe, Jewel ,Tom Brosseau, A.J.Croce, John C. Reilly and others. So It Goes, his most recent album, follows in the spirit of troubadours like Johnny Cash, James Taylor and Willie Nelson.
