The Corn Potato String Band play authentic American Appalachian folk music. The members of this band have delighted audiences with their driving fiddle tunes and harmonious singing across the US, Canada, Europe and Mexico. They are all multi-instrumentalists who are dedicated to continuing the traditional fiddle and banjo music and dance of the Central Southern US. In addition to being champion fiddlers, they play banjo, guitar, bass and mandolin and cover many different antiquated styles including ballads, ‘ho-downs’, country ‘rags’ and southern gospel.
