Fernando Pinto Presents East Rock Concert Series
Expanding on the boundaries of what an indie-folk band can be, Laura Cortese & the Dance Cards take their extensive string music background, add their knowledge of folk and roots music, to create songs that stay true to the rich lyrical rituals of folk music.
- Laura got her start as an instrumentalist, playing with artists such as Band of Horses, Pete Seeger, Rose Cousins, Jocie Adams (of the Low Anthem), and Uncle Earl. She is well-known in the fiddle community and is the co-founder of the Boston Celtic Music Festival. The band has supported Mary Chapin Carpenter and will be out with The Mountain Goats in N. America this summer in addition to a record release show at East Rock Concert Series.
A stunning lesson in all the ways string instruments can be played – bowed, plucked, percussively, striving to capture the most adventurous approach to each moment. The result is an album that incorporates dance-worthy foundational grooves, synth, and loops to push the boundaries of the genre.
Laura Cortese & The Dance Cards throw out the rulebook, creating a beautifully vivid, musically unexpected canvas from their refreshingly unconventional perspective.
