Laurie Lewis and The Right Hands
Grammy Award-winning musician Laurie Lewis is internationally renowned as a singer, songwriter, fiddler, bandleader, producer and educator. She was a founding member of the Good Ol Persons and the Grant Street String Band and has performed and recorded since 1986 with her musical partner, mandolinist Tom Rozum. Lewis has twice been voted Female Vocalist of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association and has won the respect and admiration of her peers.
The International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) in Nashville has bestowed several awards upon Lewis, including Female Vocalist of the Year (twice); Song of the Year for her recording of Who Will Watch the Home Place; and shared awards for Album of the Year for True Life Blues: The Songs of Bill Monroe and Recorded Event of the Year for True Life Blues and Follow Me Back to the Fold: A Tribute to Women in Bluegrass.
Though her music transcends the formal limitations of style and genre, Lewis still sees herself as a bluegrass musician. Ive always thought that bluegrass was basically a singer-songwriter with string band, she explains. Think Bill Monroe, Carter Stanley, Lester Flatt, etc. I like to think that I fit that description and trajectory of the music rather well. Im able to express myself in a way that sounds like me, and people either like it or not. I like to do what I do, and it fits comfortably in the bluegrass camp in my head. I dont care what other people call it.
