LAURIE LEWIS and TOM ROZUM
Atherton Performing Arts Studio
738 Kaheka Street, Honolulu, HI 96814
Saturday, February 4th, 2017, 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Laurie Lewis and Tom Rozum are widely regarded as being among the preeminent bluegrass and Americana artists of our time. They formed a musical partnership in 1986, when Tom joined Laurie's acclaimed band, Grant Street. Between them, they have recorded over twenty albums, as a duo and with their many talented musical friends, including their 1995 Grammy-nominated album "The Oak and the Laurel". Their latest release, "The Hazel and Alice Sessions", delves into the repertoire of Hazel Dickens and Alice Gerard, two trailblazing women of bluegrass music.
Together, Laurie and Tom perfectly balance each other's voices, and Tom's sometimes quirky and always deeply musical mandolin playing provides the ideal counterpoint to Laurie's original compositions.
The Atherton Studio is a small and intimate space which will sell out, so we'd like to give you a heads up about this performance. Get your tickets early to see this duo in the friendly and intimate confines of the Atherton Studio!
Tickets are $15 to $30 and available HERE!
