Mushroom Musicians Presents! 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 Roots-Folk duo Dan Frechette and Laurel Thomsen are “...prodigious players with songwriting that sets them apart" (Penguin's Eggs, Fall 2016). "Lyrically refreshing and musically diverse," they seamlessly combine emotive, "judicious violin," diverse and "phenomenal guitar playing," compelling storytelling, a dash of harmonica and humor, and unique vocal chemistry with "fascinating undertones and range," for a polished, engaging performance. Instantly memorable and magnetically appealing, months after playing the little towns the duo enjoys discovering, they learn that residents are still talking about what a great night everyone had. 

Based in Northern California, Dan and Laurel’s 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 early 2013, playing everything from Home Routes house concert tours of the Canadian Prairies, to headlining spots at the Listening Room Festival in St. Petersburg, 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. In 2018 they will be recording and releasing their fourth album.
