Abiding by a love for adventure, Corner House finds purpose and solace in the beauty of earth and music. While clinging wholeheartedly to studied traditions, the Boston based band has tended to write and arrange music liberally comprised of Irish, Scottish, Appalachian stringband, and bluegrass influences.
The singular roots music scene of Boston, MA has long been a destination for musicians seeking level footing to build upon. On winter eves most suited for warm tea and blankets, Ethan Hawkins (guitar), Louise Bichan (fiddle), Ethan Setiawan (mandolin), found a musical home in one another. After debuting at FreshGrass Festival in North Adams, MA and touring Scotland, the three found the illustrious cellist, Casey Murray, living just down the street and invited the contra-dance influenced player to join the fold. With a new recording featuring the updated lineup on the way, Corner House is aimed to make an impact in 2019.
