Ed Corr

   Acoustic Guitar and Vocals

Born in Danville, VA and lived there playing guitar in high school, mostly bluegrass.  He left for Va Tech, where he majored in architecture.  Attended lots of bluegrass festivals in Carolina, southern Virginia area in high school and college.  When not listening to bluegrass favorites like Norman Blake, New Grass Revival, Ed favored Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Bonnie Raitt, Neil Young, Frank Zappa, mostly singer songwriters.  Lost touch with playing music much of the ‘80s but rekindled his interest in the early ‘90s with a DC metro area band Ed played in called Anxious Hands that played blues, rock and original tunes.  Ed is married with three children and resides in Rockville, MD

The best thing about playing this music is learning from good friends, watching and listening for the next move, playing as a band and just spending time playing thru the old ones and learning the new ones.  Looking out and seeing the crowd laughing, listening, singing along and all together, enjoying the moment is invaluable.  Offering a personal original tune is an honor and opportunity to share a personal song, interpreted and grown by the band.
