Dan says people can also get a good idea what to expect HERE
In May 2012, Dan Frechette, Canadian entertainer, master impressionist,
acoustic guitarist, and prolific songwriter, chanced upon a YouTube
video of Monterey, California's Laurel Thomsen, world class violinist,
composer, and educator.
Dan was instantly impressed by Laurel’s incredible tone and ability to
“conjure emotions and spirit with the violin” and contacted her, hoping
someday he would hear how she could add these qualities to his own
songs (with an astonishing 1500 of them and counting, including the The
Duhks’ hit singles "Mists of Down Below" and "You Don't See It").
Laurel was equally impressed with Dan’s diversity as a songwriter, his
heartfelt voice, and his one-man-band style of guitar playing - fusing
lead, rhythm, and bass lines on just one left handed acoustic guitar.
Initially they recorded music together back and forth online and
through the wonders of modern technology began forging together a
powerful new friendship and an old-soul alt-folk acoustic sound.
A year after becoming friends online, Dan and Laurel finally met in
person, and didn’t waste time, performing their first concert together
less than 24 hours after Dan’s flight landed him in the California Bay
Area. They then drove over 25,000 miles, logged over 180 shows,
released a debut CD, and delighted North American audiences with
diversity and natural musical chemistry. Now with their new
album "New Disguise", Dan and Laurel are out making waves again with
their mesmerizing synergy.
Audiences enjoy their heartwarming harmonies, emotive violin, and
spirited guitar and harmonica, while literate, poetic lyrics, and
soundtrack ready instrumentals capture stories of triumph and irony,
wit and humor. www.danandlaurel.ca.
