Dan Frechette and Laurel Thomsen at the Henry Miller Library, Big Sur
Monterey native Laurel Thomsen knows the merits of bike valet parking . . .
and she also knows how to play the violin in an extraordinary way!
Laurel is acclaimed as a vocalist and songwriter too. That’s also true of her partner— vocalist, prolific songwriter, guitarist, and multi-instrumentalist entertainer Canadian Dan Frechette.
This year the two performed multiple shows at the Winnipeg Folk Festival, along with scores of shows coast-to-coast throughout North America. You can catch them at times in the Monterey Bay area too. The video below is from their November 11, 2016 performance to a packed house at the Henry Miller Library, Big Sur.
