Live performance of another Lincoln Hwy song

September 26, 2008

Here’s a video of Cornbread performing their slow folk-rock song “Lincoln Highway” at FloodStock 2008 on July 5. Floodstock was held to help the thousands affected by the flooding in Iowa this past Spring. Cedar Rapids especially took a devastating blow when the river crested almost 12 feet higher than ever in recorded history. More than 3,900 homes and 1,300 city blocks were flooded, and some 7,000 jobs were lost as hundreds businesses were flooded. The Cedar Rapids and Marion Chambers of Commerce, the Jaycees, the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation, and other local and national organizations helped organize the three-day benefit concert on July 3, 4 and 5 at Cabo Grill in Cedar Rapids.
