Synopsis

Amazon.com
Lamb is the fiddler for the all-female country-swing band Ranch Romance, but her debut solo album was produced by Tim O'Brien, who invited his bluegrass pals like Sam Bush, Tony Trischka, Scott Nygaard and Jerry Douglas to play along. The music itself is all over the map, from traditional bluegrass items like "Sally Goodin" and "Katy Hill" to Western Swing, Celtic music, Cajun and new-acoustic numbers, but the connecting thread is Lamb's assertive fiddle lines, full of feeling and melody. She's not much of a singer, but she only takes one lead vocal and two harmonies behind O'Brien; she wisely lets her violin do the singing on the remaining 10 instrumentals. --Geoffrey Himes

Fiddler Fatale
12/25/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a wonderful sampler of various fiddling styles including traditional old-time, cajun, western swing and some things that defy categorization (check out Ducks with Bongos). Barbara Lamb is a superb fiddler and has assembled a talented bunch of back-up players who are virtuosos on their instruments, including Sam Bush and Tim O'Brien. The cuts offer changes of mood, pace and style and as a whole the album is an interesting montage of the possibilities of fiddling. Die-hard Blue Grass types might not appreciate Lamb's creative touches to standards like Sally Goodin and old-time traditionalists might not recognize Ducks of the Millpond, but I found her inventiveness amusing and her talent obvious."
