The Ken Lambert Music Company provides high quality, live entertainment for weddings, private parties, corporate events, concert recitals,and other special occasions.
Kenneth’s talent for classical music began at the age of 3, when he first laid hands on the well-worn family violin. He has since graduated to playing on a 1934 Dvorak violin and his passion has only grown. Kenneth's classical education culminated with a Masters degree in Music with a focus on Violin Performance. This classical education led to a highly successful career with multiple orchestras including: the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Savannah Philharmonic, and the Greenville Symphony.
Ken Lambert, Violin
However, Kenneth also prides himself on being a cross-genre artist. Not only has he shared the stage with his inspiration, Yo-Yo Ma, but he has also played alongside Wynonna Judd, Marc Anthony, and Gloria Estefan. Kenneth has contributed to the music of popular shows such as ‘Stanger Things’ and ‘The Originals’ and also enjoys dabbling in the arena of video game soundtracks, such as ‘Destiny 2’. Yet, his most prized accomplishment may be the esteemed honor of the 2014 ‘Georgia Mountain Fiddle King’ (which awarded Kenneth with a trophy and bragging rights)!
