Laura Cortese with Mary Chapin Carpenter

  • The Appel Room - Jazz at Lincoln Center 10 Columbus Circle New York, NY, 10019 United States (map)

Over the course of her acclaimed career, Carpenter has sold over 14 million records. With hits like “Passionate Kisses” and “He Thinks He’ll Keep Her,” she has won five Grammy Awards (with 15 nominations), two CMA awards, two Academy of Country Music awards and is one of only fifteen female members of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.

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.
