Laura Cortese & the Dance Cards

Saturday, February 11th, 2017 - 7:30PM

LC & DC is an all-female band performing Indie folk and Americana music.


Cellist Valerie Thompson (cello/voice), fiddler Jenna Moynihan (fiddle/voice), and bassist Natalie Bohrn blend their sophisticated string arrangements and rich vocal harmonies with band leader Laura Cortese’s poignant and powerful singing. The result is a sound that can start as a string band, and morph into a string quartet, female a cappella group, or indie band; all while staying honest and true to their identity as folk instrumentalists.

Saturday, November 5th, 2016 - 7:30PM

Danielle Miraglia comes armed with a strong steady thumb on an old Gibson, an infectious stomp-box rhythm, harmonica and tunes ranging from heart-felt to socially conscious that will move both your heart and hips. 

Listening to Danielle Miraglia, it's hard to believe she isn't already famous. She sings like a cross between Janis Joplin and Bonnie Raitt, plays a mean harmonica, and, like Raitt, she's got some mad slide guitar chops.

"Straddling the line where folk/roots meets rock/blues, Miraglia has a voice that can go from a raspy come-hither purr... Read more
