Poetic invocations of living nature . . . some of the most moving I’ve heard.
For nearly four decades, California bluegrass fiddler Laurie Lewis has gathered fans and honors for her powerful, emotive voice and her versatile, dynamic songwriting. She is a sought-after producer and an equally skilled teacher and mentor. And she is an inspiration and a groundbreaker—across genres, across geography, and across gender barriers.
Lewis has shown us how a woman can blend into any part of the classic bluegrass singing trio, and she has shown us how a great voice could move fluidly between bluegrass and other genres. She has shown us how a female fiddler could emulate the strength and grit of the early bluegrass musicians. She has shown how a Californian can appeal to traditional bluegrass audiences and win acclaim in Americana and folk music.
