We came together at acoustic jam sessions and open mic nights in late 2006. Evident at those early sessions was an undeniable chemistry between several of us who shared a love for old time Appalachian folk and bluegrass music, so the idea of building a band was discussed. After the formal line up was set, we officially began rehearsing as a band at the famous "Bait Shop" rehearsal studios in early 2007, and "Mama Corn" was born. Right from the first rehearsals there was a lot of potential and we knew we had something special. We worked on enough material in those early rehearsals to schedule our first showcase at a local watering hole called "The Hitching Post" where the owner was a bluegrass enthusiast.
