Laura Cortese & The Dance Cards
They were hailed as one of the most outstanding acts at 2016’s Shetland Folk Festival and after touring here earlier, R2 magazine writer David Innes declared that Laura Cortese & The Dance Cards had been his “most memorable gig” of the year, saying they “swung and rocked with constraint-free exuberance, tugging at and capturing the hearts of everyone.”
The accolade was the latest in a long line of positive critical responses to both the ‘live’ shows and recorded material.
Laura Cortese has built a distinguished career following a path that led her to be one of the most in-demand musical partners and collaborators on the circuit while continuing at the same time, to make her own music.
Reviewers have always loved her performing style and panache, Songlines magazine stating: “This was a celebration of American string playing par excellence,” while fRoots magazine called her “powerful and gutsy.”
There’s a brand new album coming, to keep fans happy.
