You could say that this life of musical stew brewed the new solo Barbara Lamb show. She says, “In 2008 I turned a corner musically. I started the Barbara Lamb Solo Show with more gear than I had ever had to drag around in my past. More gear, but incredible musical freedom. This solo show is really a one woman band. I use looping gear, lots of hand percussion instruments, parts of my body as percussion instruments, an electric kalimba, wine glasses, my fiddle and my voice to create these audio sculptures. It’s performance art you can dance to.”
Her latest recording is TWISTY GIRL on Lots of Coffee Records. It represents her show with ten original pieces ranging from the quirky Scio Sheep Barn to the plaintive I Was Wondering to the completely electronica vibing Benny Got a Chicken.
