Corb Lund Plays At Rhythm & Brews Feb. 7

Thursday, January 24, 2013

Corb Lund – the descendant of four generations of Albertan ranchers and former punk/metal player – is planning a U.S. run of dates in February with his longtime band The Hurtin' Albertans, including a stop at Rhythm & Brews on Feb. 7.

Review for Corb Lund:

 In the Nashville Scene's 13th Annual Country Music Critics' Poll, Corb Lund is the #10 male vocalist and 'Cabin Fever' is the #20 best album of 2012. 

Others have agreed. 'Cabin Fever' (New West) was named to year-end best lists by 29-95 (Houston Chronicle) and No Depression and caught the number one spot on The Oregonian's list. American Songwriter named "September" one of its top 50 songs of 2012.

Meanwhile, Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley confirmed that Corb Lund will open a date April 12 in Springfield, Mo. 

Goth girls to survivalists, bovines to bibles, antique pistols to vintage motorcycles: Lund’s songcraft creates vivid images and character sketches with hard-worn western language. Raves have run in the NY Times, NPR All Things Considered, Paste, and elsewhere.
