No one quite knows how to describe Cornshed. Some of our favourite descriptions are in the Press page quotes, but what it really comes down to is this music goes back to our roots.
Being Canadian, our roots are musically diverse.
Growing up in small towns filled with country, folk, and bluegrass, it was all bound to rub off on us eventually. Add in our members' histories in marching bands, more studio and touring than we care to list, a love for singing shanties in seaside pubs, and even full-on university training in musical theory, and the result is a clusterfolk of instrumental tunes with the driving force of a punk band.
Cornshed started off as a solo project at open mic nights, where the positive reaction of crowds quickly inspired an expansion to the stomping, dancing, forget-about-your-next-day-of-work experience you love today.
The Current members of Cornshed are: Andrew Mueller (Guitars), Marc Lovisa (Drums),Dave Wise (Bass),Alexander Marusyk (Mandolin)Emily Jane Absalom(fiddle).
