These videos are brought to you in part with the cooperation and assistance of Bluegrass On The Tube, a project of Carl Carlson
Before the advent of the Internet and online video the only reliable way to SEE bluegrass was to go to a live show.
This is still the best way to see the music, but if you want to see the many great musicians who are no longer with us (and the living ones who aren't playing tonight in your town), we've created Bluegrass On The Tube as the Internet's search engine for bluegrass videos.
If you like what we're doing, please help spread the word.
Dedicated to the preservation and enjoyment of bluegrass music - past and present.
Today's Video is:

Laurie Lewis, Alan O'Bryant, & Sam Bush perform on the American Music Shop.
About The Artist
Laurie Lewis (born September 28, 1950 in Long Beach, California), is an American bluegrass musician. In the mid-1970s, she cofounded the Good Ol' Persons, an all-female bluegrass band with Kathy Kallick.
In 1979 she founded the Grant Street String Band, also including Beth Weil, Tom Bekeny, Greg Townsend, and Steve Krause, in which her own songwriting came to the forefront. In the late '80s, she formed "Laurie Lewis and Grant Street". Since then, she has recorded solo and duo albums, usually accompanied by mandolin artist and singer, Tom Rozum.
Nowadays, she often plays under different names with a fairly regular roster of musicians, calling themselves "Laurie Lewis and her Bluegrass Pals," "the Guest House Band;" in 2006, she renamed her group "Laurie Lewis and the Right Hands."
As a crossover artist, Lewis is comfortable with folk music and some pop music. She writes her own lyrics as well as composing the music. Her Songbook contains most of the songs she wrote in the twentieth century, as well as photographs from her from early life and the early days of her career.
