Laura Cortese & The Dance Cards

  • Stoltz Listening Room 40 East Dover Street Easton, MD, 21601 United States (map)

Cutting her teeth as a sideman in Boston's roots music scene, Laura Cortese forged a unique path through a pool rich in talent (due to a large population of Berklee School of Music graduates like herself) including stints as an instrumentalist with Band of Horses, Pete Seeger, Rose Cousins, Jocie Adams (of the Low Anthem), and Uncle Earl.

Her Compass Records debut, CALIFORNIA CALLING, is the next step in her career as a frontwoman and bandleader - she and her Dance Cards, (Cellist Valerie Thompson, fiddler Jenna Moynihan, and bassist Zoe Guigeno) break new ground with a bold and elegant new album, based in the lyrical rituals of folk music but exploring new territories of rhythm and sonics.

This is post-folk that seriously rocks.
