Kurt Wagner, the enigmatic frontman for Nasvhille-based alternative country band Lambchop, will be making his Israel debut at the Barby Club on April 6. The sprawling music of Lambchop, described by the All Music Guide as "arguably the most consistently brilliant and unique American group to emerge during the 1990s," is shaped by Wagner's quirky songwriting and droll delivery. Originally focusing on traditional country, the band grew to encompass soul, jazz and avant-garde noise. Wagner will be performing solo, a change of pace for the guitarist who is usually accompanied by a minimum of six bandmates in Lambchop. The band's last album, OH, was released in 2008.
