Abiding by a love for adventure, Corner House finds purpose and solace in the beauty of earth and music. Clinging wholeheartedly to studied traditions, they 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 her to join the fold, unveiling the new line up on a second EP, Smart Folks, released in 2019.
Finding themselves displaced, dispersed and unable to perform or travel due to the pandemic in 2020, plans for recording a debut full-length album were put on the back-burner. The group eventually managed to reconvene safely in July 2020, in the beautiful and inspiring setting of the Pennsylvanian countryside, fresh with new compositions, ideas and perspectives. There they laid down their third EP, Caribou Party, released on March 5th 2021. With their full length album underway, Corner House are optimistic for the future and excited for live music’s big come-back!
