Laurie Lewis and partner Tom Rozum present a west coast flavored bluegrass music with shades of country, folk, and old-time included. She writes about the beauty of nature, the nature of love, the love of life, and the life of the spirit. I asked Laurie what version of her band was coming to Lexinton, and she responded, "The band that will be playing is the West Coast version of the RightHands. We have been playing together for about 5 years out here, but I have never before gotten these guys out to the East Coast. They are truly great players, and I love being able to (mostly) play guitar, drive the band, and sing, and hear Chad's sweet and fiery fiddle behind the vocals. The lineup features long-time collaborator and partner Tom Rozu on mandolin, mandola, and vocals, Patric Sauber on banjo and vocals, Chad Manning on fiddle, and Andrew Conklin on bass and vocals. The band is touring in support of their new CD "Skippin' and Flyin," a tribute to Bill Monroe's 100th birthday with additional material. She is a four time IBMA award winner, including twice as Female Vocalist of the Year.
