May 19th- The Corn Potato String Band– The Corn Potato String Band has earned high praise in traditional American music, keeping old time fiddle and banjo music from a one-way trip to the dustbins of history. Theirs is a story of struggle, hard knocks and triumph. Essentially unable to cope with modern life, the members of this band are outcasts of society who survive by playing the lost music of the flatlands where they were raised.
The Corn Potatos have delighted audiences with their driving fiddle tunes and harmonious singing across the US, Canada, Europe, Mexico, and India. They are all multi-instrumentalists dedicated to continuing the music and dance traditions of the Central and Southern US. In addition to being champion fiddlers they play banjo, guitar, bass and mandolin and deftly handle many different antiquated styles including ballads, “ho-downs,” country “rags” and southern gospel, specializing in twin fiddling and double banjo tunes. This is the third time we have welcomed this band back to the Hall and we are very excited to have them again. Would LOVE to fill the Hall up this time. They are incredibly talented and fun musicians.
Opening the evening with be local favorites Jen Maurer and Anthony Papaleo. These folks are all good friends, I’m sure they will be playing some tunes together throughout the night…FUN!!!
