Following performances with Peter Yarrow (Peter, Paul and Mary) in Harrisonburg, Virginia and a slew of spring tour dates in Washing DC, and Denmark, critically acclaimed singer/songwriter, Dana LaCroix brings her acoustic duo to Oneonta for an intimate evening of roots and blues. The show features special guest, Murali Coryell.

A solid background in traditional folk music and a youth spent listening to the great pop and R&B artists of the 70’s and 80’s, has drawn LaCroix comparisons to artists like Bonnie Raitt, Eva Cassidy and Maria Muldaur. A recent European review described her music as resting in “the borderland between pop, Americana, country, folk and singer-songwriter traditions…refined but not showy.”

With 6 studio albums under her belt, LaCroix’s songs have been tapped for feature films, including John Turturro’s Fear X, and major label releases, and have garnered kudos from such musical luminaries as Gordon Lightfoot, who described her sophomore release, Faith In You as “A passionate album by a wonderful songwriter”. LaCroix’s most recent cd, The Great Divide, was the most-played song of the week on Danish national radio and received critical acclaim from the national media.

Acclaimed by Billboard, CNN, Rolling Stone, & The New York Times, Murali Coryell is a rising force in contemporary American music. The son of jazz guitar legend Larry Coryell,  Murali has been dazzling audiences for years with his dynamic live performances and a deeply soulful voice that harkens back to R&B legends like Sam Cooke and Marvin Gaye.
