Cornmeal Fiddle Player Allie Kral Announces Departure From Band

It is with a heavy heart that after 10 years with Cornmeal, we say goodbye to Allie Kral.  Her powerhouse presence on stage and musical chemistry with the band will be greatly missed.  We wish her the best in her musical endeavors and cannot thank her enough for the hard work and personal sacrifices she gave throughout her 10 years on the road. Cornmeal will be conducting a nationwide search for a fiddle replacement in the coming months and looking to get back on the road as soon as possible.
