Corb Lund coming May 9
Corb Lund and the Hurtin’ Albertans lead the charge to the Pilsner Bush Bash at the CN Centre on Thursday, May 9.
Tickets go on sale Friday, March 1, at noon, and one lucky person will win a trip to the Saskatchewan Roughriders home opener – including game tickets, accommodations, and $500 towards travel.
Corb Lund’s latest album Cabin Fever follows on the boot heels of his 2009 New West debut, the critically acclaimed Losin’ Lately Gambler, his sixth album. Backed by his longtime band, The Hurtin’ Albertans, the Juno Award recipient has won kudos in his native land: the Canadian Country Music Association named Lund Roots Artist of the Year seven consecutive years from 2004 - 2010.
From Goth girls to survivalists, bovines to bibles, antique pistols to vintage motorcycles, the Alberta-born honkytonker’s songs cover it all. From a rustic retreat deep in the Rocky Mountain forest, Cabin Fever evolved from a period of introspection and hard traveling. Just like the prolific Lund’s subjects run the gamut, so do the sonics on the live-sounding long-player, ranging from rockabilly to Western swing, cowboy balladry to country-rock. And, of course, the occasional yodel… The Pilsner Bush Bash with Corb Lund and the Hurtin’ Albertans and special guests at the CN Centre on May 9 is a honkytonk cabaret (19 years and older).
Tickets are general admission, with limited reserved table tickets available on the floor.
