Barbara Lamb and the Sheepless Knights

Barbara Lamb

A real American bluegrass band Barbara Lamb and the Sheepless Knights will perform at the Minsk State Philharmonic Hall on March 11. From lightning-fast Earl Scruggs banjo tunes to sweet waltzes and the tightest three-part bluegrass harmony singing in America, Barbara Lamb and the Sheepless Knights deliver traditional and progressive bluegrass music from Nashville, Tennessee.

For twenty years fiddler-singer Barbara Lamb has lived in Nashville, Tennessee touring with many top names in bluegrass and country music. While touring for a year with the most prominent western swing band in America, Asleep At The Wheel, Barbara played as a guest with Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and Emmylou Harris. Barbara recorded one CD with Asleep At The Wheel that won a GRAMMY Award. Overall, Barbara has made ten CDs; she has played at Carnegie Hall, The Grand Ole Opry, Telluride Bluegrass Festival and Merlefest to mention some of the more prestigious venues.

Barbara Lamb and bassist Scott Esbeck first joined forces in 1994 playing together in the Nashville hit country band The Sweethearts of the Rodeo. They toured as Barbara Lamb and the Sheepless Knights after the release of Blue On Dakota produced by Esbeck in 2000. They are joined by Scott Simontacchi on guitar and Ned Luberecki on banjo.

All the band members have played The Grand Ole Opry over the years. Collectively these four musicians have traveled the world including Russia, China, Malaysia, Australia, Scandinavia, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Greece, Serbia, Bosnia, Belgium, Holland, England, France and Czech Republic.
