Trying to put a label on the music of fiddle player Barbara Lamb is next to impossible. According to Acoustic Musician magazine, Babs playing is tough, fancy and appealing.... Flashy, hard-driving and eclectic, her style has been called chrome on the range, an upbeat repertoire that roams from rockabilly and bluegrass to country and Cajun, from retro-jazz and Western swing to neo-traditional roots music.
Lamb shows off her wide-ranging musical styles on this edition of Jubilee, recorded at the Master Musicians Festival in Somerset, KY.
Lamb has also appeared on A Prairie Home Companion and The Grand Ole Opry and has performed with Lyle Lovett, Riders in the Sky, and Asleep at the Wheel. She won old-time fiddle championships as a teenager and has earned awards in country, pop, and folk music.
