After a brief hiatus while bringing together a fresh lineup, Cornmeal is back at it…and in a big way! After playing a few select shows in November and December, the band is stronger than ever and ready to announce their first tour in almost a year. The new lineup includes the co-writing team and founding members Chris Gangi (bass) and Wavy Dave Burlingame (banjo), along with newest members Scott Tipping (guitar) formerly of Backyard Tire Fire, Drew Littell (drums), and guest appearing on fiddle (indefinitely) is Molly Healey formerly of Big Smith from Springfield, MO.
While the lineup has changed – Cornmeal remains the one of the premier progressive bluegrass and Americana bands and is looking forward to reconnecting with fans on the road in 2014. The new lineup brings a fresh energetic take on the classic Cornmeal sound which is influenced by American roots and folk music and seamlessly blends lightning fast tempos and impeccable harmonies into an unrivaled live performance.
