Memorial Day Weekend w/ David Via & Corn Tornado, Tubing
David Via and Corn Tornado Saturday, May 24, 2014 8 pm David Via returns to Acoustic Stage with his talented band! David Via and Corn Tornado's mix of bluegrass, blues and jazz has been called "Blues-grass, Americana, Roots and Ya'll-ternative". Via is a three-time winner of the Merlefest Chris Austin Songwriting Contest and the 2009 International/American Folk Alliance Songwriters Contest. Via's talent as a songwriter is obvious, but when he gets together with his band, the picking and jamming take over and his songs come to life. His songs performed live by Corn Tornado usually result in a high energy performance featuring all four skilled musicians. Via backs up his songs onstage with hot-pickin' mandolin and lead vocals. Corn Tornado includes the fast-pickin' Danny Knicely on guitar, great fiddle from Nate Leath and fine playing by John Flower on the upright bass. TICKETS: Members: $12.00 Guests: $16.00 Tickets are also available at Larry's Music and Sound in downtown Hickory.
