An evening with Laura Cortese & The Dance Cards at Catamount Arts in St Johnsbury VT
July 15, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Laura Cortese has a vision for her band’s sound: bold and elegant, schooled in the lyrical rituals of folk music and backed by grooves that alternately inspire Cajun two-stepping and rock-n-roll hip swagger. It’s appropriate then that the quartet, featuring Cortese, call themselves Laura Cortese & the Dance Cards.
Since the release of Cortese’s most recent album, Into the Dark (2013), Valerie Thompson (cello/vox), Jenna Moynihan (fiddle/vox) and Natalie Bohrn (bass/vox) have paired their sophisticated string arrangements and rich vocal harmonies to Cortese’s poignant and powerful singing. Seeing the quartet on stage, you get the sense that they might snap some fiddle strings or punch a hole in the bass drum. This is post-folk that seriously rocks. True to their adventurous spirit and wide-ranging influences, Laura Cortese & the Dance Cards tour internationally, communicating the depth and soul of American roots music, using their own uniquely modern voices.
