Thanks to Laurie Lewis and The Right Hands for providing a happy audience with an exceptional night of energetic and beautiful bluegrass music. Those who attended were thrilled to hear this California based band in Poughkeepsie. Laurie wowed the audience when the band left the stage and walked up the aisle to sing “Who Will Watch The Home Place” with all of us. If you weren’t there….well, you missed a real “happening.”
As one of our members wrote, “Laurie Lewis and The Right Hands show was the best so far. Can’t wait to see them again.” The HVBA also hopes to have this band back in Poughkeepsie again.
Thanks go out to all of those who worked and so hard and gave so generously to make our evening a success! Our Patrons were R.J. Storm, Hudson Crossing, and Kristin & Bob O’Connor. Our Supporters were Ed Schaffer and Jerry & Faith Oland. Supporters were Jeff Anzevino, Lynn & Steve Lipton, Leslie Bates & Terry Edwards. We could not have done this without them!!!
