"A product of the Bay Area's bluegrass scene, Laurie exemplifies the genre's universal appeal, even as she remains true to its regionalist origins. A superb multi-instrumentalist, Laurie with her group [the Right Hands] . displays its light touch and impeccable taste . they transform their influences into music that feels immediate, personal and even at times eccentric."- Ed Hurt, Nashville Scene, Festival Picks
