Laura Cortese, songwriter and violinist, grew up in San Francisco and moved to Boston to study violin at Berklee College of Music. She has since immersed herself in the city's vibrant indie music scene and enjoyed a busy sideman career, which has included appearances with Band of Horses at Carnegie Hall, Pete Seeger at Newport Folk Festival, and Patterson Hood and Michael Franti for Seeger's ninetieth birthday celebration at Madison Square Garden. She performs frequently with Jocie Adams of the Low Anthem and can be heard on Adams's upcoming album.
"Ambition often follows talent, and Laura Cortese has an embarrassment of both. Her open-armed approach to her art reveals a determination to spread the word about folk music and dance without watering down their distinctiveness."
- John Wenzel, The Denver Post
This tour coincides with the release of her critically acclaimed CD "Into the Dark". She will be appearing with Mariel Vandersteel on violin and Valerie Thompson on cello, both of whom collaborated with her on this CD project.
