Landchop are one of the finest and perhaps the most surprising bands Nashville has ever produced.

As distant from what now passes for country in the genre's capital as is possible, and whose ambitions far outreach the rigid aesthetic of contemporary American, Lambchop have made a career of confounding expectations. Led by mastermind Kurt Wagner, Lambchop explores a curious brand of roots music that touches on country, rock, R&B and folk with occasional splashed of experimentation. Their performance at Galway Ars Festival draws from their rich canon of material incluing their latest The Decline and Fall of Country & Western Civilization: The Woodwind Years.
