Members of Lewis family will reunite to keep tradition alive

Three members of the Lewis Family bluegrass group of Lincolnton, Ga., will perform today for the first time as The Lewis Tradition.

They will make their debut at 8:45 p.m. for the Larkin Family's Christmas in the Smokies show at the Smoky Mountain Convention Center at the Ramada Inn in Pigeon Forge, Tenn.

Lewis Tradition performers are Lewis Family lead vocalist Janis Lewis Phillips; her banjo-and guitar-playing son, Lewis Phillips; and her bass-playing nephew, Travis Lewis.

The Lewis Tradition evolved from the retirement of the original Lewis Family this year after more than 50 years of performances.
