Appalachia in the Bluegrass Concert Series, sponsored by The John Jacob Niles Center for American Music and the UK College of Fine Arts
CornMaiz is a nouveau old-time family string band from Kentucky featuring original music, traditional, old-time tunes from Eastern Kentucky, and unique versions of some famous cover songs. The band features clawhammer banjo, mandolin, guitar, bass, fiddle, and three part harmonies. Performances also include the amazing traditional Appalachian dance styles of flat-footing and clogging. The group has performed at festivals and events throughout Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, and in Mexico.
CornMaiz seeks to present the evolving traditions of Appalachia, and provide cultural perspectives and stories from their oft-stereotyped region, while sharing the fun and generous spirit of the genre!
