Innovative Boston fiddle quartet, Laura Cortese and The Dance Cards are currently working on a new album with the help of producer Sam Kassirer (Josh Ritter, Lake Street Dive). Although Cortese has released several albums under her own name, including two solo albums, she has been touring as Laura Cortese and The Dance Cards for the past few years. The lineup, along with Cortese, is made up of Valerie Thompson (cello/vocals), fiddler Jenna Moynihan (fiddle/vocals), and bassist Natalie Bohrn. Cortese joined Cindy Howes on Folk Alley recently for a Guest DJ set and to talk about the band’s Pledge Music campaign in order to fund the album, which is due out in the first half of 2017.

{{**Note: In the interview with Laura, it’s mentioned that her Pledge Music campaign to fund the new record ends September 26th, however that deadline has been extended to October 13th.**}}
