Laura Cortese wears many hats: fiddler, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, bandleader. But above all, she is an instigator of creativity and a builder of community wherever she goes. After wending her way from California to Boston, founding a music camp and a festival, and playing and singing with scores of artists, she assembled the Dance Cards: a quartet of singing string players. Their original music is based on the lyrical rituals of folk while exploring new territories of rhythm and sonics.
