Lambchop’s Kurt Wagner will embark on a European tour of intimate piano shows, accompanied by Minneapolis-based musician and producer Andrew Broder. Broder worked with Wagner on Lambchop’s acclaimed albums, The Bible and Showtunes. This rare and special collaboration promises to be a showcase of their talents, reducing classic Lambchop songs to their essence and highlighting their emotional power.
This will be a double concert night, that is, in addition to the Lambchop show, there will be another concert with an artist to be announced soon. The same ticket entitles you to both shows.
The An Intimate Piano Performance from Lambchop tour will include a series of intimate piano performances throughout Europe, giving audiences a rare opportunity to see these two incredible musicians up close and personal and the beauty and complexity of their music. This will be a chance to experience Lambchop’s classic songs in a new light, stripped down to their essence and presented in a way that highlights their emotional power and depth.
Lambchop formed in Nashville in 1986 and have since released more than a dozen critically acclaimed albums on the City Slang and Merge Records labels. Over the years they have incorporated elements of soul, jazz and country into their music while Kurt Wagner’s voice has remained the heart and soul of the band, a powerful and emotive instrument that can convey a world of emotions with just a few well-chosen words.
Andrew Broder, meanwhile, has carved out his own niche in the music world as producer, musician and vocalist for the experimental group Fog. With his deep knowledge of music theory and his love of experimentation, Broder has become known for pushing the boundaries of what is possible in music, mixing genres and sounds in new and exciting ways.
Together, Wagner and Broder have worked on some of Lambchop’s most critically acclaimed albums, including The Bible and Showtunes. On those albums, Broder’s contributions were instrumental in creating the lush, layered sound that the project is known for. By combining Wagner’s earnest songwriting with Broder’s sonic experimentation, something truly unique and memorable has emerged.
This tour promises to be a continuation of this fruitful collaboration, with Wagner and Broder challenging each other to new heights of creativity and expression. Whether you’re a long-time Lambchop fan or just discovering them now, this is one tour you won’t want to miss.
