Meeting via a chance YouTube sighting and fueled by rare musical chemistry, eclectic Roots-Folk songwriters Dan Frechette, guitar/vocals, and Laurel Thomsen, violin/vocals, prove that musical magic is not only possible, but as described by The Monterey Herald, “a match made in heaven.” Lyrically refreshing and musically diverse, over the past three years this Canadian-American duo has toured extensively throughout the U.S. and Canada, releasing two albums of their diverse and uplifting original material. Dan and Laurel take to the stage with exuberance, and as a concert reviewer in Tappen, British Columbia wrote, with “their energy, winsome personalities, and toe-tapping rhythms, keep audiences engaged with every song”.
“In scorching form” (The Telegraph), Northern California’s own Rita Hosking sings of forest fires, culture clash, demolition derbies, dishes, the working class, and hope. From NPR’ s Weekend Edition to major music festivals, she is moving audiences around the globe with her stories in song and powerful voice -- "a captivating performer" (R2 Magazine). With partner Sean Feder on sparkling dobro and melodic banjo, the two deliver what No Depression calls "authentic American folk music to stir the soul."
