Barbara Lamb (#303)
Fiddler Barbara Lamb burns up the stage with her eclectic style.
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 eclectic musical styles on this edition of Jubilee, recorded at the Master Musicians Festival in Somerset, KY.
Barbara Lamb has 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.
