Originally a classically trained violinist, Laurie Lewis became a California bluegrass and old-time fiddle champion in the 1970s, and went on to found the Good Ol' Persons (along with Kathy Kallick) before forming her own Grant Street String Band in 1979. Mandolinist Tom Rozum joined Grant Street in 1987 and the pair's exquisite vocal blend and sympathetic instrumental interplay immediately became a key part of the trademark Grant Street sound. In addition to Laurie Lewis on fiddle and vocals and Tom Rozum on mandolin, guitar, vocals, the 1990 version of the Grant Street Band includes Tony Furtado on banjo, Scott Nygaard on guitar and Tammy Fassaert on bass and vocals. Songs included come from the repertoire of the Louvin and Delmore Brothers, Jimmie Rodgers, the Maddox Brothers & Rose and others.
