Laurie Lewis and Tom Rozum both grew up in the 60s. Rozum was more of a rocker and said that he started listening to more Folk and American-roots music after driving home to Connecticut after the infamous Woodstock Festival in August 1969.
Lewis started listening to the same in high school and college. It was rumored that she really loved the music of the Dillards, the Greenbriar Boys, Ralph Stanley, Bill Monroe and Doc Watson. Watson, a musician and artist died Tuesday.
Every folk music fan of the 60s and 70s and those of today, seem to love him. He will likely be remembered as a legendary guitarist for at least the next 100 years.
Lewis has a strong stage presence and is considered one of greats of bluegrass and folk music. She won a Grammy for the album “True Life Blues: The Songs of Bill Monroe” in 1997. The two were nominated for a “Best Traditional Folk Album” Grammy with “The Oak & The Laurel” in 1995.
The duo has appeared on Garrison Keillor’s “Prairie Home Companion” many times. Lewis has also won the International Bluegrass Music Association’s “Best Female Vocalist of the Year” twice.
