Laurie Lewis & the Right HandsIt doesn’t get much better than Laurie Lewis & the Right Hands. She’s Berkeley’s own, she’s won the International Bluegrass Music Association award for Female Vocalist of the Year multiple times, not to mention a Grammy for her contribution to True Life Blues: The Songs of Bill Monroe, and her Right Hands are about as talented as a band has a right to be. Laurie sings and plays guitar and fiddle. Tom Rozum sings, swaps jokes, and plays mandolin, mandola, and guitar, Chad Manning plays fiddle, Patrick Sauber plays banjo, and Andrew Conklin plays bass. If you’ve never heard them before, you need to hear them as soon as you can. And if you’ve already heard them, chances are you want to hear them again. Singout! calls Laurie “one of the leading lights of American acoustic music, a genuine national treasure,” and Country Standard Time says that she “has recorded some of the finest folk-inspired music of the past three decades.”


Since her graduation from Berkeley High, Laurie has recorded more than 20 albums – with the Good Ol’ Persons, Grant Street, Kathy Kallick, and Laurie Lewis & the Right Hands, as well as several solo projects. Last year she released Hills to Hollers, recorded with Linda Tillery and Barbara Higbie, and this year she has released two albums, Guest House, recorded with Tom, and One Evening in May, recorded live at the Freight with Tom and Nina Gerber. “Creatively ambitious and utterly unpretentious, steeped in tradition but doggedly progressive,” says critic Andrew Gilbert, Laurie “is a gifted fiddler, deft guitarist, inspired songwriter and powerfully evocative singer.” The Right Hands are her perfect complement. Don’t miss Laurie & the Right Hands in their musical home at the Freight.
