One of the preeminent bluegrass and Americana artists, Grammy winner Laurie Lewis is a versatile singer, guitarist and fiddler who came of age in the 1970s Bay Area bluegrass scene, where she submerged herself in both region’s historic progressivism and its hardcore commitment to musical tradition: primarily the gospels of Bill Monroe and Ralph Stanley. She co-founded the all-female Good Ol’ Persons bluegrass band and later the Grant Street String Band, in which her own songwriting came to the forefront. Nowadays, she often plays under different names with a fairly regular roster of the best bluegrass musicians. Her latest release is 2024’s Trees.

“It’s possible to be a strong female presence in the Bluegrass music world, but you have to be really strong. Laurie is one of the greatest Bluegrass artists, woman or man, because of her consistency over decades, the depth and width of her subject matter, her commitment to the Bluegrass form, and her technical command. Oh yes, and her strength. Laurie’s strength manifests in many ways: her commanding presence on stage combined with an emotional vulnerability, the truths in her lyrics, her physical voice which transcends gender, her strong commitment to causes and issues in which she deeply believes, which all resonate with a respect for the land, the natural world, and human mercy and justice.” -Darol Anger
