String Band Workshop with Corn Potato!

String Band Workshop with Corn Potato!

String Band Workshop for fiddle, banjo and guitar. All skill levels welcome, but workshop will be geared toward intermediate experience on your instrument. We will learn a few tunes together, break out by instrument for specific instruction, then rejoin the group to play together. $25-$30 sliding scale.

The Corn Potato String Band earns 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.
