Album of the Week at Celtic Music Radio –Laura Cortese and the Dance Cards – California Calling – Release 6 Oct

Band Members -Laura Cortese / Valerie Thompson  / Valerie Thompson /Jenna Moynihan
‘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.’

Laura Cortese and the Dance Cards are over in the UK on their ‘Laura Cortese and the Dance Cards California Calling Tour ! You will be able to see them in Paisley at The Spree (if ticks still available – going fast!!!)

‘That segued right into one of the most refreshing sets I saw all week. Laura Cortese and the Dance Cards of Cambridge, Massachusetts, head-faked me into thinking they would be a swingy retro quartet, when in fact they’re out there on the searching edge of chamber folk and minimalist pulse grass. From the risk of opening with an emotional four-way harmony ballad to the serene beauty of “California Is Calling” (the title track to an upcoming album that’s been featured on the Bluegrass Situation), their close and complex harmonies and imaginative arrangements signified the best of folk right now’ -The Bluegrass Situation – Craig Havighurst
