b. 23 December 1940, Scotland. Lambe sang at the age of 17 with the Clyde Valley Stompers and then for many years she worked in the London area with a variety of bands including Kenny Ball, Chris Barber, Acker Bilk and Alex Welsh. Gradually, her fame spread, partly owing to appearances at many international jazz festivals where she often sang with small groups led by her husband Danny Moss. With him, she spent time in Australia, residing there at the start of the 90s but continuing to tour annually either in America or Europe. During her career Lambe has sung with modern and mainstream jazz musicians including Monty Alexander, Ben Webster, Budd Johnson, Oscar Peterson, Wild Bill Davison, Kenny Davern, Joe Pass and Buddy Tate. Over the years, Lambe’s voice has subtly darkened, adding greater texture to an already fluid musical instrument.
