LAURIE LEWIS & KATHY KALLICK: Laurie & Kathy Sing the Songs of Vern & Ray (Spruce and Maple) See the song list.
“I’m a longtime fan of both of these bluegrass super-heroines and I’d been waiting for this album since I first heard it was in the melting pot: an 18 song primer of Californian-associated bluegrass standards that is a joy to listen to and a full-on foot-tapper to boot. … some of our all time favorite bluegrass tunes that owe their popularity to the short careers of Vern and Ray, lovingly reprised here by two of bluegrass’s most respected daughters. One of the best tribute albums I have heard in many a day.” – Ronnie Norton, Lonesome Highway
KATHY KALLICK & FRIENDS plus DODI KALLICK: What Are They Doing In Heaven Today? (Live Oak – 2 CD set) See the song list.
“Kathy Kallick grew up with the folk music scene in Chicago with a talented mother who passed on a love of song and an ability to inspire others to make their own music. Kathy has been a part of this sharing process, and this 2-CD collection of songs performed with friends (including Molly Tuttle, Tristan Scroggins, Mike Compton, Suzy Thompson, and Laurie Lewis) and family showcase some of the traditional songs that need to be remembered, revised, and passed on to the next generation of musicians.” – Brenda Hough, Bluegrass Breakdown
LAURIE LEWIS: Freight 98 (Spruce and Maple) See the song list.
“In June of 1998, I assembled this band [Darol Anger, Mike Marshall, Tom Rozum, Nina Gerber, Todd Phillips, Mary Gibbons, and Kathy Kallick] to celebrate the release of my then-new album, Seeing Things. The nights were electric, magical, and sometimes pretty darned loose, as we had had only one rehearsal. All these years later, stumbling on this recording, I am so pleased with the freshness of the music that I just had to share it with you.” – Laurie Lewis
