Two-time IBMA Female Vocalist of the Year, Laurie Lewis is an amazing singer, songwriter, and fiddler who has been impressing bluegrass crowds for over 30 years. Known for her lively stage shows, Laurie and her band are not to be missed.
Since forming a musical partnership in 1986, when Tom first joined Laurie’s acclaimed band, Grant Street, Laurie Lewis and Tom Rozum have recorded 12 albums and performed around the globe. These Grammy-nominated artists (for their 1995 album The Oak and the Laurel) are widely regarded as among the leading lights of modern bluegrass and are highly-prized by their peers as sidemen and producers.
International Bluegrass Music Association executive director Dan Hays calls Laurie “one of the preeminent bluegrass and Americana artists of our time.” Acclaimed musician Sam Bush puts it more simply, calling her “a great singer, terrific fiddle player, fine songwriter, and one very good band leader.” Laurie also performed on both the Grammy-award winning, 1997 IBMA album of the year True Life Blues: The Songs of Bill Monroe, and the Grammy-nominated Ralph Stanley & Friends’ release Clinch Mountain Country.
Joining her are the Right Hands, comprised of long-time playing partner Tom Rozum (mandolin), bassist Andrew Conklin , fiddler Chad Manning, banjoist Patrick Sauber, and guitarist Scott Huffman.
