About Laurie ...

Grammy Award-winning musician Laurie Lewis is internationally renowned as a singer, songwriter, fiddler, bandleader, producer and educator. She was a founding member of the Good Ol’ Persons and the Grant Street String Band and has performed and recorded since 1986 with her musical partner, mandolinist Tom Rozum. Laurie has twice been voted “Female Vocalist of the Year” by the International Bluegrass Music Association and has won the respect and admiration of her peers.

Though her music transcends the formal limitations of style and genre, Laurie Lewis still sees herself as a bluegrass musician. “I’ve always thought that bluegrass was basically a singer-songwriter with string band,” she explains. “Think Bill Monroe, Carter Stanley, Lester Flatt, etc. I like to think that I fit that description and trajectory of the music rather well. I’m able to express myself in a way that sounds like me, and people either like it or not. I like to do what I do, and it fits comfortably in the bluegrass camp in my head. I don’t care what other people call it.”

Special Wild and Scenic Wine Raffle!

We'll be holding a very special raffle at the concert, for six, two-bottle sets of Amador County Easton Zinfandel wine. Each two-bottle set will include:

  • One bottle of priceless, limited-release 2011 Wild and Scenic Mokelumne-label Amador zinfandel specially crafted by master winemaker Bill Easton to benefit our (now successful) effort to secure Wild and Scenic designation for the Mokelumne. This specially bottled zin has aged beautifully and is a very fine wine, indeed. Foothill Conservancy only has six bottles of this wine remaining, and all will be raffled off at the concert.
  • One bottle of 2014 Easton zinfandel, with a Wine Spectator rating of 90. This wine is very drinkable now, with full black cherry and blackberry fruit aromas with a beautiful balance and a big, sumptuous, and juicy mouth feel. It also presents complex spicy aromas, with a nice creamy texture derived from the 10 months time it receives in French oak barrels. $22 value.

Wine-set raffle tickets will be on sale for $20 each at the concert, and you must attend the concert and be present to win. Don't miss this opportunity to take home some very special wine!
