Bonnett House is both the name of a trio and the house in which the group’s first album was recorded. Band members include Sandy MacKay, Clinton Charlton and Bill Preeper.
Beginning in the fall of 2014, the group started getting together at Bonnett House to write songs and record demos. Several songs were written during the first few sessions and a decision was made to record some of them for an album that would attempt to capture the feeling of the old house and those first weeks playing together. Recording took place throughout the following winter and the result was a CD which we call, simply, “Songs From Bonnett House”. We made the music for our own enjoyment but hope others will like it too, possibly feeling some of the atmosphere of that small room on a winter night.
