Laura Cortese at the Homegrown Coffeehouse
Welding the propulsive grace of ancient fiddle styles to disarmingly open-hearted original songs, Laura Cortese has emerged among the most intriguing and versatile, musicians in the bountiful New England post-folk scene. Her music is a kaleidoscopic hybrid that is enriched by roots music undertones and yet remains defiantly contemporary. Her showmanship, charm and virtuosic technique make her a favorite among musicians and music lovers alike, at home in New England as well as overseas in the UK, Ireland and Denmark.

Laura's high-visibility work as a supporting musician (on fiddle, vocals, and bass) includes appearances with Uncle Earl, Tao Seeger, Band of Horses, and as part of Pete Seeger's 90th birthday celebration at Madison Square Garden. The past two years have found Laura in creative overdrive, balancing sideman duties, solo tours, and recording sessions. For this show, Laura will be joined by fiddle player Mariel Vandersteel and cellist Valerie Thompson.  Opening the show will be the dynamic Dietrich Strause,  whose music is a mix of real journeys, clever literary references, and striking imagery.  LAURA CORTESE  at the Homegrown Coffeehouse, Saturday, May 4, at 8:00 P.M.

The Homegrown Coffeehouse is located at the First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church, at the corner of Great Plain and Dedham Avenue in Needham center. There is free parking and full handicapped access. Admission is $20.00 /  $15.00 students and seniors  to benefit the Church.
