Laura is an innovative performer specialising in medieval, traditional and experimental music. She explores the spaces between ancient, improvised and contemporary performance and has been described by The Times as a “Virtuoso Magpie Musician”. She studied at London College of Music and the University of East Anglia. Laura is the founder member of experimental folk duo Horses Brawl with whom she has released four albums, toured extensively throughout the UK and beyond and appeared several times on BBC Radio 3. In 2011 Laura was offered an artist residency at Aldeburgh Music, where she wrote and recorded an album with experimental harpist Rhodri Davies. She is also working on a new collaboration with Charles Hayward (This Heat) and Ralph Cumbers (Bass Clef).
Laura Cannell & André Bosman perform improvised experimental fiddle music with a focus on exploring the interweaving sounds and textures of their instruments. Through the use of extended techniques, distortion, feedback and space, they create a unified and untamed music of emotive otherness.
