About Laurie Lewis & The Right Hands

“Her voice is a rare combination of grit and grace, strength and delicacy. Her stories always ring true.” ~ Linda Ronstadt

For nearly four decades, Laurie Lewis has gathered fans and honors for her powerful and emotive voice and her versatile, dynamic songwriting. She is a sought-after recording producer and an equally skilled teacher and mentor – and an inspiration and a ground-breaker across genres, across geography and across gender barriers.

Laurie has twice been named Female Vocalist of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association, and won Song of the Year for her rendition of the now-standard “Who Will Watch the Home Place?” She has collaborated on numerous other award-winning recordings.

Laurie has shown us how a woman can blend into any part of the classic bluegrass singing trio, and as a fiddler, she demonstrates the strength and grit of the early bluegrass musicians. She has shown how a Californian can appeal to traditional bluegrass audiences, while winning acclaim in the worlds of Americana and folk music.

She has shown us how to lead bands of talented musicians – helping them make their best music. And she has shown us how to thrive in a constantly changing musical environment – without ever sacrificing her art.

Although she has played roots music since her teenage years and performed in various bands from her early 20s, it wasn’t until she was 36 that Laurie decided to venture out on her own. Her solo recording, Restless Rambling Heart, introduced the national music audience to Laurie’s talents and versatility.

Poet, essayist, novelist, and environmental activist Wendell Berry has asked her to set some of his poems to music.

Laurie has been nominated for GRAMMYs for her own projects and has been prominently featured on others’ GRAMMY-winning works.
