John C. Campbell Folk School - John C. Campbell Free Concert - Aaron Olwell
Aaron Olwell has been playing music for more than half of his life. Fiddler's conventions, trips to the All-Ireland Fleadh Cheiol, house parties, and square dances take up much of his time. He makes wooden flutes in the Olwell Flute Shop his father founded almost 30 years ago.
He recorded the underground CD sensation Light & Hitch, one of the few bands to sell out a first pressing of albums without playing any gigs. Most recently Aaron has focused on the more humorous side of music, including pump-organs, chocolate flutes, clarinet duets, and the double slide whistle. He has been on Staff at the Augusta Heritage Center's workshops in Elkins, WV and he won first place in fiddle at the 2014 Appalachian Stringband Festival (aka Clifftop). He also plays clarinet in Boxcar Speakeasy, a roots jazz band.
