Laura Cortese '02 Profiled in the Boston Globe

January 12, 2012

Since graduating from Berklee College of Music about a decade ago, violinist Laura Cortese has proven she’s more than just a virtuosic fiddle champion. Her recent Acoustic Project brings together other fine female folk musicians performing Cortese’s original folk-pop songs (and some covers) as a fiddle-based string quartet. The ensemble features Cortese, Natalie Haas, Hanneke Cassel, and Mariel Vandersteel.
