16/1/17 Guitar BCN 2017
The music festival Guitar BCN, dedicated mainly to the world of the 6 strings, heats motors to begin a new edition next January 23 in the old theater Arteria Paral.lel, nowadays is the space known as BARTS (Barcelona Arts On Stage) and managed by the promoter The Project, responsible for organizing several renowned music festivals in Barcelona, including Guitar BCN 2017, which this year is exceeded with incredible programming.
The curtain call for the Guitar BCN 2017 festival will be in charge of the American band Lambchop, formerly known as Posterchild, founded in 1986 in Nashville, Tennesse. It is a group cataloged within the musical genre “alternative country” although it is not easy to assign them a single musical genre due to their varied influences of post-rock, soul and lounge; One could say that the most prominent feature of Lambchop is to be a band formed by a large group of musicians focused on transmitting to the public all their creative ability. The leader and vocalist of the band, Kurt Wagner is responsible for giving his personal touch to the band with his particular way of singing and composing. The lyrics of Wagner are considered subtle but ambiguous and his voice melodic but charismatic, undoubtedly a mixture of very original styles that make of Lambchop an incomparable band.
The musical portal AllMusic referred to them as “possibly the single and most consistently brilliant American group that emerged in the 1990s.”
Lambchop will not be the only group to shine in this edition of Guitar BCN 2017, as there will also be performances by artists such as Loquillo, Miguel Campello, Muchachito, Adriana Varela, Animal and Taburete. Among the international artists that will be on the stage of Guitar BCN has already confirmed the participation of top guitarists David Fiuczynski and Gary Lucas, in addition to the expected performance of Rick Astley, the author of one of the greatest musical hits of the 80’s “Never Gonna Give You Up”.
The golden pin to close this edition of the festival will be the iconic Spanish band Amaral. So from our design hotel in Barcelona we invite you to enjoy the good atmosphere that characterizes this festival of music full of great artists.
