Sedona AZ - One of the great country, bluegrass vocalists of our time, Laurie Lewis, will be joined by mandolin/guitarist Tom Rozum to headline the Second Annual Water to Wine Festival at Old Town Center for the Arts on Saturday, April 17th. The festival that features 6 Verde Valley Vintners with wine tasting, entertainment and an expert wine panel will happen from 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM. Laurie Lewis and Tom Rozum will take the theater stage at OTCA at 7:00 PM. Join us for this great spring day in Old Town Cottonwood. Now, more details about the concert.
Legend is not always loud. Particularly in the beneath-the-radar sub streams of American folk music and bluegrass, it is bestowed more by whispered word-of-mouth, over years and decades, than by the hurried hype and ballyhoo of the pop mainstream. You can't measure Laurie Lewis's 30-year career with the usual commercial yardsticks. A stirring vocalist, gifted songwriter, champion fiddler, and topnotch bandleader, she has won a Grammy, for "True Life Blues: The Songs of Bill Monroe," in 1997, and twice been named Female Vocalist of the Year by the IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Associatin
