Laura Cortese & The Dance Cards

Earlier this year fiddler and singer Laura Cortese released her new album, ‘California Calling.’ It’s her first on Compass Records with her band The Dance Cards: Valerie Thompson ” cello & vocals; Jenna Moynihan ” fiddle & vocals; and Natalie Bohrn ” bass & vocals.

In November 2017, Laura and the Dance Cards (Thompson, Moynihan, and Zoe Guigueno on bass) came to Beehive Productions studio in Saranac Lake for an in-studio performance and to share some thoughts about the excitement of making her first album that “brings into focus the idea of stings (two fiddles, cello and bass) and voices making indie-folk music” with rich, textured soundscapes.
