Pumpkin & Beer Festival
Due to popular demand, we are again resurrecting the Scarecrow competiition!!!
This is in addition to the Vegetable Monster competition.
There will be prizes for both competitions, so let your imagination run wild. We hope to see you here!
Laura Cortese has a vision for her band's sound: bold and elegant, schooled in the lyrical rituals of folk music and backed by grooves that alternately inspire Cajun two-stepping and rock-n-roll hip swagger. It's appropriate then that the quartet, featuring Cortese, call themselves Laura Cortese & the Dance Cards. Cellist Valerie Thompson (cello/vox), the band's newest fiddler Jenna Moynihan (fiddle/hardingfele/vox), and a rotating cast of female bass players pair their sophisticated string arrangements and rich vocal harmonies to Cortese's poignant and powerful singing. Watching them on the main stage at a summer folk festival, or tearing it up late-night at a club, you get the sense that they might snap some fiddle strings or punch a hole in the bass drum. This is post-folk that seriously rocks.
