Laura Cannell and André Bosman have performed together in multiple projects over the past fifteen years, their most recent projects include touring with Cannell’s Modern Ritual Series which has taken them in their solo guises to perform throughout the UK at venues such as Liverpool Philharmonic Hall and London’s LSO St Luke’s. As a duo they have performed at Cafe Oto, Spitalfields Festival, Full of Noises, Supernormal, The Union Chapel, earlier this year they were recorded live in concert and featured on BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction.
They are both self taught on the violin, Laura brings to the duo her background in medieval, experimental and improvised music with four critically acclaimed solo albums since 2014 and regular touring in the UK and Europe, while André brings his back porch fiddle leanings influenced by his early years growing up in Kentucky, USA. His love of distorted textures, early minimalism, American primitivism, and medieval dirge also feed in to his solo aesthetics as electronic musician Hoofus.
