Meeting via a chance YouTube sighting and fueled by their undeniable musical chemistry, eclectic Roots-Folk songwriters Dan Frechette, guitar/harmonica/vocals, and Laurel Thomsen, violin/vocals, prove that musical magic is possible. Lyrically refreshing and musically diverse, since meeting in person in early 2013, this Canadian-American duo has been making up for lost time. Logging over 150 concerts per year throughout the U.S. and Canada since then, they have already released three radio charting albums of their diverse and uplifting original material. Dan Frechette, Canadian entertainer, multi-instrumentalist, uncanny impressionist, and prolific singer-songwriter, is a musical force. Laurel Thomsen, California born genre-bending violinist, composer, published author, and respected educator, has performed classically and with a variety of bands and artists since 1998. With broad influences ranging from Folk, Classical, Old Time and Celtic, to Gospel, Jazz, Vintage Country, Rock N’ Roll, Blues, and Bluegrass, Dan and Laurel flow seamlessly through genres, tempos, stories, and moods, embodying each style with virtuosic command and keeping music fans on the edge of their seats. Enjoyment is palpable.
