|Sun 12th Aug||Laura Cortese & The Dance Cards||8pm (Doors 7.30)|
|Laura Cortese grew up in San Francisco, studied at Berklee College of Music in Boston, immersing herself in the city’s vibrant indie music scene and enjoying a busy touring-and-studio-sidekick career which included appearances with Band of Horses at Carnegie Hall and Pete Seeger at Newport Folk Festival.
But, it’s been with her band, The Dance Cards that she has made the biggest impact. It’s bold and elegant fare, schooled in the lyrical rituals of folk music and backed by grooves that alternately inspire Cajun two-stepping and rock ‘n’ roll swagger. David Innes (RnR magazine) awarded them his “Most Memorable Gig of The Year” vote saying they “swung with constraint-free exuberance, tugging at and capturing everyone’s hearts.” Songlines magazine drooled: “This was a celebration of American string playing par excellence.”
Their current album, California Calling, has been winning them rave reviews and much radio exposure. It was Album of The Week on the Radcliffe & Maconie show at BBC Radio 6.
