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.
