About Americana Night with Yola Carter and Laura Cortese & The Dance Cards

Bringing a bit of Americana to the Spree are Yola Carter (winner at the UK Americana Music Awards) and from Boston, Massachusetts, Laura Cortese & The Dance Cards.

Hailing from Bristol, Yola Carter was raised on gospel has been a long-time fan of Dolly Parton, Otis Redding and Gillian Welch.

A force of nature and an incredibly talented singer-songwriter, Yola has been a producer and singer with artists such as Massive Attack, Duke Dumont and Chase & Status Phantom Limb. In 2016, Yola embraced a career with her first love, Americana music, and in September of the same year was chosen to represent the UK at the prestigious Americana Music Association showcase in Nashville in where she was selected by the massively influential broadcaster NPR as one of their top 10 artists. In February she crowned UK Artist Of The Year by The Americana Music Association UK.


“Sporting an afro that’s almost as spectacular as her voice, Yola Carter explores that glorious territory between country and soul…the most pleasing of paradoxes: authentic Americana with a British soul” **** The Times

“Country gospel with the driving energy of old-fashioned soul music...Her songs brandished big hooks and she filled them with stirring vocals, shouts, and yes, yodeling.” The Guardian
