Event: Ora Cogan & Laura Baird

Tues, March 26th at 8pm at 

Ora Cogan
Laura Baird 

"Ora Cogan’s haunting voice and post-americana guitar playing are like none other. Her music is expansive, beautiful and ethereal. It makes you feel as though you are laying down in a rowboat and drifting across a calm lake in the pitch black night with a storm approaching. She has collaborated with a variety of artists including Tara Jane O’Neil, Anni Rossi, Alela Diane, and The Be Good Tanyas, and has shared the stage with the likes of Hope Sandoval, Vashti Bunyan, Scout Niblett, Au, and Tanya Tagaq."

Laura Baird has been writing songs and making home recordings since the late 1980's. She is also an enthusiastic collector and performer of traditional Appalachian music. She sings and plays many instruments, including clawhammer banjo, guitar, piano and harpsichord and has recorded with Espers (flute) and Death Vessel (banjo and backing vocals.) She records and performs as The Baird Sisters, with her sister Meg.
