DAN FRECHETTE & LAUREL THOMSEN AT THE PARADISE GRANGE
YouTube served as yenta to pair the rare musical chemistry of Dan Frechette and Laurel Thomsen (http://www.danandlaurel.ca/). Both powerful and magnetic talents in their own rights, this Canadian-American duo bring their alternative folk music magic to Norton Buffalo Hall on Saturday, December 3, 2016 at 7:00 PM.
Over the past four-plus years the couple has toured throughout the U.S. and Canada and released two albums. Audiences have been “falling in love” with their winning combination of fine vocal harmony, superior arrangements, and storytelling.
Frechette is considered to be one of Canada's leading talents on acoustic guitar and harmonica. A prolific songwriter (1300 songs and counting), he penned the The Duhks’ hit single, "Mists of Down Below". 'Sing Out!' magazine called Dan "one of the most talented singer-songwriters I've heard in a long time." He has performed his high-energy, entertaining, and soulful concerts throughout North America and Europe since 1992.
Thomsen is a genre-bending violinist, composer, songwriter and respected educator, who combines the tone and emotional range of classical training with a diverse palate of fiddle styles and acoustic genres, from Blues to ragtime to Gypsy Jazz.
Doors open and the dinner hour begins at 6:00PM. The public is invited to come early to purchase a meal of hearty homemade fare (just $7, purchased separately). Delicious desserts and beverages will be available throughout the night.
