The Corndrinkers Bluegrass Band, featuring stepdancer Beth Wright
Join us on Saturday, October 10, 2015 at 7:30PM as we welcome back The Corndrinkers. Joining the Corndrinkers for this performance will be Appalachian style clog and stepdancer Beth Wright. Beth toured for nine years as a member of the Dayton based Rhythm in Shoes ensemble and is currently a resident artist with the Muse Machine Program in Dayton.
For the past 38 years the Corndrinkers have kept alive the tunes and songs of the southern mountain stringbands from the " Golden Age " of country music, the 1920's and 1930's. Inspired by the tunes of such country music pioneers as the Carter Family, the Skillet Lickers, Uncle Dave Macon, Charlie Poole, and the Delmore Brothers, the Corndrinkers have played at festivals and dances throughout Ohio, Kentucky, West Virginia, North Carolina and elsewhere in the Appalachian region. The Band is a summertime tradition in southwest Ohio, playing and calling the barn dances at Carriage Hill MetroPark in Huber Heights for almost four decades.
The band is Barb Kuhns and Linda Scutt on twin fiddles, Tom Duffee playing banjo, Doug Smith on guitar and dobro, and Al Turnbull on bass fiddle. The Corndrinkers have recorded two CD's, The Corndrinkers.........and Corndrinkers Still.
