Cornelius 'Zorny' Bode

Cornelius (guitar, bass, vocals) was born in Hannover and raised in Wunstorf and has been playing the guitar in various bands and groups since the age of ten. From the very beginning, his musical interests have steered him towards folk music from all over the world and in particular to Irish music, which has become and remains his musical passion.
His guitar playing is characterised by its distinctive groove and exciting harmonic variations. Cornelius performs and plays with "Ganaim", "Larún", "Sue Sheehan Band", "Trasnú" and "Land's End Sessions" and has been a member of Emerald since 2005.
