Laurie Lewis & The Right Hands pay homage to the pioneering bluegrass duo Hazel Dickens and Alice Gerrard on their upcoming album The Hazel and Alice Sessions, which features young prodigy fiddler Tatiana Hargreaves, Americana songstress Aoife O'Donovan, Alice Gerrard herself, and a duet with Linda Ronstadt!
Hazel and Alice were two of the first professional female artists in bluegrass and they paved the way for so many more, though not without difficulty. Laurie has always been inspired by their work and is herself a trailblazing woman in bluegrass who has now inspired multiple generations as well. Their new album features songs written by Hazel and Alice, plus traditional songs from their repertoire and it's some of Laurie Lewis' best music yet!
Laurie Lewis is one of the most acclaimed and accomplished performers on the acoustic-music scene today. A stirring vocalist, gifted songwriter, champion fiddler, and topnotch band leader, she has won a Grammy and twice been named Female Vocalist of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association. With nearly 20 solo, duo, and band albums to her credit, she has just released Blossoms (Spruce and Maple Music), a winning collection of originals and covers that explores new territory while remaining true to her beloved Americana roots.
