BARTS will be hosting several concerts as part of the annual Grec Festival program, most notably Lambchop on July 17th and Norwegian singer-songwriter Ane Brun on July 25th.
Lambchop are not an easy band to define. From Nashville and associated with the alternative country scene, they are the brainchild of singer-songwriter and guitarist Kurt Wagner who, together with a cast of supporting musicians, has created a unique style, adding soul, post-rock and their own brand of lounge music to the equation. Throw in Wagner’s soft, almost deadpan, vocal delivery with witty, ironic lyrics and a rich, orchestrated sound, and you have something strangely beautiful and beautifully strange.
With album titles like Mr. M, OH (Ohio) and Is a Woman, this is clearly not your average band. They should be an interesting prospect live on stage.
