Laura Cortese & the Dance Cards are like sonic magpies: curious adventurers traversing the world collecting melodies and rhythms that glitter like jewels. The common thread? The power of strings.
Schooled in the rituals of folk and led by master fiddler/vocalist Laura Cortese, this all-female collective of Berklee College of Music alums throws out the rulebook, combining rich strings with edgy pop sensibility, dance-worthy grooves, and rock ‘n’ roll swagger to stretch the boundaries of what an indie-folk band can be. Highlights of their eclectic musical tapestry include collaborations with Band of Horses, Uncle Earl, Aiofe O’Donovan, and Pete Seeger at Newport Folk Festival.
Pencil in Laura Cortese & the Dance Cards and let this music sweep you up, carrying you away from everyday worries and into the arms of its cathartic embrace.
