DC-area singer/songwriter Rowan Corbett brings a mixture of modern and traditional sounds, instruments, and sensibilities with his eclectic playing. In addition to his own original music, you’ll find Irish, English and Scottish folk tunes, Early-American Ballads and acoustic renditions of modern Rock and Electronica.

As a guitarist, plectrum banjo and Irish Bouzouki player, Rowan brings a myriad of rhythmic and sonic palettes to bear. And on hand drums, bodhran and the bones, he is a rare talent!

As well as being a long standing percussionist with the Baltimore-based favorite, ilyAIMY, Rowan is a current member of the Grammy-winning Carolina Chocolate Drops. He also plays in the band of Rhiannon Giddens’ ongoing solo project. His Irish band, Tinsmith, will soon be celebrating its twentieth anniversary.
