Fall Leaves in January
WELCOME TO THE NEW YEAR!
Dear Companions,

I am welcoming the New Year with a renewed sense of hope and energy for the future, sweeping out the old cobwebs in the corners, and opening up my heart to new adventures and experiences. Starting right off this month, I will be swapping songs with Don Henry and Claudia Russell (see below), and then visiting Hawaii with Tom Rozum for our annual Aloha Tour. Then The Right Hands are off and running up the East Coast. I can tell you, I won't be bored!

I have been working on an album of duets with musicians I love. So far, I've recorded with Molly Tuttle, Craig Smith, Nina Gerber, Todd Phillips, Tatiana Hargreaves, and Mike Marshall. I am looking forward to getting these songs out into the world. Stay tuned here for the latest developments on that front.

There is a tendency to want to say something profound about the passing year and the new one, but I really mostly feel the continuum, no solid sense of a break from the old or a new beginning. Just a little more light each day for awhile. I hope it brightens your lives, and that you will come out and see us if our paths cross this year.

Thank you for taking the journey with us,
Laurie Lewis

MUSIC CAMPS 2019

RIVER TRIPS 2019

Tom Rozum and I will be continuing our quarter-century tradition of taking at least one musical river trip a year. This year, we have confirmed two of our favorites, keeping in mind that, as Heraclitus said, you cannot step into the same river twice.

JULY 2-6
Five days and four nights on the wild and scenic Rogue River, in southern Oregon, with Northwest Rafting Company

JULY 23-25
Three days and two nights on our beautiful, steep and wild Tuolumne River here in California, withARTA

On each trip, we will spend the days exploring the river and it's tributaries, eating fantastic food prepared by our most excellent guides, and playing music around the camp in the long summer evenings. We invite you to join us on one or both rivers this year!
