Corn Potato Duo, Emily Keener
The members of the CORN POTATO STRING BAND earn 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 Potatoes 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 United States. 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.

Ive heard quite a lot of old-time fiddle and banjo playing, trust me, but Ive never heard it like this played at break-neck speeds, Aarons fiddle whipping around tight corners like a high-end sports car. It was like watching Bach hopped up on speed, composing kickass barn dance tunes in Appalachia. Kind of. -No Depression

They blew the audience away. A half-hour of standards, obscurities and charming banter later, the decidedly hip multi-instrumentalists received one of the most thunderous ovations of any opening act Ive witnessed in quite some time. -PopMatters
