This Week on WPKN / WPKM /

Deb Guhl with Nashville Fiddler Barbara Lamb
Deb interviews Nashville fiddler and singer Barbara Lamb, former member of Asleep At The Wheel, The Laura Love Band and The John Cowan Band. She has just released a new CD of ten original compositions representative of her new solo one-woman band show. Watching her live show (most recently at a WPKN benefit in Southampton) one can't believe that one performer is creating all the different sounds coming out of the speakers. She builds her pieces with looping and effects, a plethora of percussion instruments, her voice and her fiddle. Saturday July 18 4 pm
