Dan Frechette & Laurel Thomsen

Acoustic Folk / Indie

Meeting via a chance YouTube sighting in 2012 and fueled by a once-in-a-lifetime musical chemistry and friendship, Canadian-American Roots-Folk duo Dan Frechette and Laurel Thomsen are “prodigious players with songwriting that sets them apart.” Now touring in support of their recently released fourth album, "Driving By Candlelight," they combine soaring violin, diverse guitar styles, and unique vocal rapport for a dynamic, engaging, and polished performance. Now married and based in Northern California, Dan and Laurel’s third album, "Between the Rain," was top ten all across Canada on the campus radio Roots charts for 2016. They have toured North America extensively, performing over 150 dates per year for the past five years and everything from Home Routes house concert tours of the Canadian Prairies, to headlining spots at the Listening Room Festival in Florida, the definitive Winnipeg Folk Festival, and opening up for The Wailin’ Jennys. In 2017 they made their European debut, including concerts in Ireland, Denmark, the UK, France, and Germany.
