San Francisco-based “Appalachian Gothic” band Kaptain Bottletop was founded by Lee Corbie-Wells and David Boyden in the fall of 2015. Inspired by Celtic, Scandinavian and bluegrass music, we play tunes old and new, along with our original compositions. Chief among our various instruments are two 10-stringed hardanger d’amores (#18 and #19) built by Norwegian luthier Salve Håkedal.

We owe a particular donut shop a great deal to our overall growth as a band.

See you at the show!
