The Ears and Eyes of America
How I found out about the Corn Potato String Band is another mystery. I’m glad I did! These guys are simply astonishing. They have an unusual, eclectic selection of music for one thing. They remind me of the Uncle Walts Band sort of from Austin in the early 70’s, but a little edgier. Then there’s Aaron Lewis, who will be featured in the next issue of iFiddle Magazine. He’s a multi-instrumentalist and man he plays that fiddle.
The Corn Potato String Band has a new album out called:
Good Job Everybody
This album features the best of rare and nearly-forgotten old time country music played with energy, originality and love. Includes a twin-fiddle Midwestern polka, an original double-banjo tune, and plenty of cautionary tales. Recorded live, no overdubs.
