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 tends 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 autumn of 2017, Corner House debuted at FreshGrass Festival in North Adams, MA, before recording an EP and touring Scotland 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.

“Corner House’s music is thoughtful and inspired…points straight in the direction of where roots music is headed, and it’s a great and bright destination.” – Bruce Molsky

“These fine musicians and lovely people think about each note they make and it comes together in something bigger. Simply beautiful music.” – Maeve Gilchrist

“…expertly played instruments and beautifully arranged vocal harmonies. Lilting, high flying and leaving a flutter in your chest.” – Red Line Roots

“It’s warm, beautiful, and earthly, and feels like it comes straight from the soul.” – Divide and Conquer

“It’s brilliant!” Alex Cumming, WMFO Radio
