Bluegrass with a Berkeley twist. Laurie Lewis offers a sound all her own, and she’s accompanied by an virtuoso-packed band–the Right Hands.

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. She’s twice won the Female Vocalist of the Year award from the International Bluegrass Music Association. The Right Hands are: Tom Rozum vocals, mandolin, mandola, guitar and jokes; Patrick Sauber banjo; Brandon Godman, fiddle; and Sam Grisman bass.
