Dan Frechette and Laurel Thomsen

Meeting via a chance YouTube sighting and fueled by a once-in-a-lifetime musical chemistry and friendship, Canadian-American duo Dan Frechette and Laurel Thomsen are “...prodigious players with songwriting that sets them apart..." (Penguin's Eggs). Dan and Laurel seamlessly combine emotive, soaring violin, diverse guitar styles, a dash of harmonica and humor, and unique vocal chemistry with a polished, engaging performance, both on stage and in the studio.

Based in Northern California, their third album, Between the Rain, was top ten on Canada’s campus radio Roots charts for 2016. They have toured North America extensively since teaming up in 2013, playing everything from Home Routes house concert tours of Canada, 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.
