About the Band: The Mother Corn Shuckers

The Mother Corn Shuckers are a nine piece acoustic Bluegrass/Americana band based out of the Central Coast of California that first “sprouted out” as a music jam around a fire pit. This ragged band of “surf-a-billies” and “shuck-adours” will surprise you with the fun lovin’ sound they call “Beergrass”. Their six part harmonies and foot stompin’ melodies can bring a shuckin’ good time to any event or venue.
