Using guitars and keyboard, Dust and Ashes sing about the importance of a life of personal devotion to God as well as a life that is committed to helping bring justice and peace to the earth.
Tom Page, an ordained United Methodist minister, began Dust and Ashes at Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington DC. Originally, Dust and Ashes were staff members of the United Methodist General Board of Discipleship and began their full-time national ministry there. The other half of the duo is Tom’s wife, MaryLou Troutman, and together they continue in full-time ministry, taking their music to local churches, national church events, prisons, radio and television. Dust and Ashes spend most of their time in ministry with local churches of all sizes, leading worship and /or singing in concert. Drawing on music from the fields of Christian, folk, country and pop, they also continue to write much of their own music and have composed several songs for audio and video projects of The United Methodist Church.
