American songwriter and violinist, Laura Cortese (the Dance Cards, Bright Light Sessions) is always looking for treasures in terms of sound, groove and melody based on Roots music. After living in Belgium for several years, she met many artists of various musical genres and instruments (bluegrass, Cajun, old time, zydeco and other Roots music). For this unique concert, she brings together four songwriters from both sides of the Atlantic.
One of them is Kris Drever (Lau, Spell Songs), folk singer-songwriter and key player in the contemporary Scottish folk and roots scene. Coming from the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, songwriter Eli West (Cahalen Morrison, John Reischman, Bill Frisell, Dori Freeman) will also take part by bringing a specific sound from the Pacific Northwest and especially of the banjo. Finally, the virtuoso Nora Brown, a young American. will complete this talented musical ensemble. His passion for the music and stories of Appalachia distinguish him with a heritage of the past, present and future.
