We’ve been fans of Laurie Lewis for a long time. Because she’s based on the west coast, she was often at Wintergrass, a February bluegrass event held for many years in Tacoma and since moved to Bellevue, Washington. Tim was a regular attender at this event. Laurie Lewis does not often travel to the east coast so we are honored to host her at our house concert series in April. Laurie will be with the Right Hands, and amazing band that will include Hasee Ciaccio on bass (here with Barefoot Movement and then in Dec. 2017 with Winter Jubilee – Music and Memories from the Mountain South), Patrick Sauber on banjo and Brandon Godman on fiddle.
While there are many videos of Laurie that you can find on the internet, the following video has the combination of musicians that will be at our house concert. There are some technical difficulties at the beginning so start the video at 11:15. On a side note, the other band featured on WoodSongs is Nefesh Mountain, a band we recently saw at Folk Alliance International in New Orleans, and we hope to get them here in the fall.
The Honey Dewdrops is our next show, but it sold out. If you’d like to see Laurie Lewis on April 25 please rsvp with Tim at firstname.lastname@example.org
“The Mammals are Ruth Ungar, Mike Merenda, and a cohort of compelling collaborators who form a touring quintet on the fiddle, banjo, guitar, organ, bass, and drums. Identifying as “subversive acoustic traditionalists” or a “party band with a conscience,” The Mammals re-emerged from a hibernation period during-which the band’s founders explored new songwriting terrain. “The Mammals don’t suffer from multiple genre syndrome, they celebrate it as if gleefully aware that the sound barriers separating old-timey music, vintage pop and contemporary folk are as permeable as cotton.” – Washington Post

“This type of music would be comfortable at the Grand Ole Opry, Austin City Limits and they wouldn’t get kicked off that old fogey classic Lawrence Welk Show either. It’s that’s diversified, satisfying and most importantly, good. “
