Rowan Corbett - Bones & beginning Bodhran
Since taking up music in 1991, Rowan has explored various genres and instruments. He's a current member of the Carolina Chocolate Drops and plays guitar, plectrum banjo and percussion for Rhiannon Giddens' recent solo project. Rowan is also a co-founder of the progressive Irish/Appalachian group Tinsmith, and is a backing musician for various acoustic folk-rock acts in and around DC and Baltimore, including ilyAIMY and the Acacia Sears Band. Rowan began playing the bones in 1994 and the Bodhran shortly after, while playing Irish music. In the last several years he has begun to explore the roots of percussion in early American traditions, from Minstrelsy to Old-Time. http://www.rowancorbett.com/
