The Lambs have come a long way since picking up the violin as preschoolers. Karis, 20, is now a junior at the University of Alabama, where she is a violin performance major. Kiemel, 18, also a UA violin-performance student, has begun her freshman year. Meanwhile, the younger siblings are making high marks of their own. Kolson, 15, and Caleb, 13, are members of Tuscaloosa Chamber Strings, where Kolson has taken the reins of concertmaster. Kiemel previously served as concertmaster for the chamber group and Karis, for its predecessor, Tuscaloosa Youth Orchestra. All three sisters are members of the prestigious Alabama Huxford Symphony Orchestra. They were selected to perform on an October 2004 segment of From the Top, a National Public Radio program that showcases young classical musicians.
The highlight of the Lambs’ busy 2007 calendar was a double performance for the second-term inauguration festivities of Alabama Governor Bob Riley. They also provided musical enjoyment for other dignitaries.
The Lamb Family phenomenon has caught the attention of national and regional media outlets, including television talk shows, news programs and radio broadcasts. The Rick and Bubba Show has interviewed family members on three occasions. The Lambs have also been widely covered in print media, notably in the following magazines: Southern Living, Alabama Weddings, Tuscaloosa Magazine, Alabama Alumni, Alabama Southern Bride, Tuscaloosa Bridal Directory, Woodmen of the World, Jubilation, Tuscaloosa Christian Family, and Alabama ALIVE.
The Lamb Family Violin Ensemble is in great demand throughout the southeast and play a variety of music styles including sacred, classical, pop and fiddle tunes. Performance venues for the “Three Lambs and a Ram,” range widely. They include churches, corporate events, weddings, a variety of special events, packed sports arenas, and the personal-touch settings where the siblings share their love and their gift of music with those confined to hospital beds and nursing homes.
Wherever they perform, the siblings exude excitement and offer a life-changing experience to all who hear them. Their inspirational message and dynamic music engage audiences of all ages.
PSALTERIUM is the Lamb’s third studio recording. Their previous releases are Music with a Message and Christmas with the Lamb Family.

|"...These young people can gravitate from divinely melodious sounds for the ceremony to lively and entertaining melodies for the reception that will keep the party moving."

|"The Lamb Family attributes its success to God, and their music carries a far more meaningful message than most. According to DuRhonda, 'It is the most humbling experience to play for the sick and dying. It keeps your feet on the ground and makes you realize where your priorities should be.'"
Woodmen of the World Magazine
"Angels with finely-tuned harps would find their match in the magical music of the Lamb family violinists. The four young musicians play a repertoire ranging from classical to sacred, pop and fiddle --... their patriotic songs bring a tear to the eye. The ensemble's devotion to music is obvious and their focus is definitely enviable. You find yourself watching the three girls and one boy individuals they play, transfixed by the obvious joy on their faces. Of course, you feel the joy too--that's the gift of the Lambs."
|“Music is exactly what happens whenever the Lambs, Karis 16; Kiemel, 13; Kolson, 11; and Caleb, at 9, the only boy, touch a bow to violin strings. Whether it comes in the form of classical pieces, time-honored pop tunes or even toe-tapping fiddle numbers, the siblings have become locally renown for coaxing dulcet tones from their instruments. In fact, the four children of Bill and DuRhonda Lamb, of Tuscaloosa, seem to have a penchant for producing tears in listeners’ eyes just by virtue of their sweet harmonics. It’s a fact not lost on the brides of Tuscaloosa, and the very reason the Lamb Family's weekends are booked for months in advance as they serenade weddings and receptions around the county and state."||
