"It’s this balance of simplicity and grace with the actual technical prowess….that really impresses." - Red Line Roots “...ferocious fiddle, with a couple of the most talented and exciting young string players in the US right now. Any corners you get to turn with them are going to be unexpected fun.” - Darol Anger Abiding by a love for adventure, Corner House finds purpose and solace in the beauty of earth and music. Clinging whole heartedly 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. In the fall of 2017, Corner House had debuted at FreshGrass Festival in North Adams, MA and were making preparations to record an EP and tour Scotland, which they did in the summer of the following year. Returning from overseas, the three found the illustrious cellist, Casey Murray, living just down the street and invited the contra-dance influenced player to join the fold. The group is currently gearing up for tours along the west coast in summer 2019, and New England in the fall. They are looking forward to meeting you.
