Due to popular demand Corb has added a 2nd night at Hugh's Room Live in Toronto. The Juno and CCMA Award-winning singer-songwriter will perform rare solo sets at Toronto's preeminent listening room on Feb 16 & 17th.
Corb and the Hurtin' Albertans are heading to Las Vegas this month to do not one, not two, but THREE shows during the Wangler National Finals Rodeo. And the best part: All three shows are completely FREE!
The "Hooey Jam" shows take place at the Tropicana at 4 p.m. on Dec. 14, 15 and 16. Corb says the afternoon showcases give music lovers an opportunity to check out the band before heading to the rodeo.
Corb Lund returns to Europe in 2018, and the award-winning country star is gearing-up to performing his distinct brand of underground country music, straight-up and solo.
“Playing with my band is one of my favourite things, but solo shows allow me to interact with the audience in a whole new way,” Lund says. “I don’t get to Europe all that often, so I really want these shows to be special.”
Lund won’t be completely alone on this run, though: His Jan. 26 performance at Celtic Connections in Glasgow will be alongside his friend and frequent songwriting buddy, Hayes Carll. Later, Lund will join his fellow Canadian, up-and-coming country artist Colter Wall, on two of Wall’s shows in the Netherlands.
Corb has teamed up with Guitars for Good to offer a limited edition Corb Lund T-shirt. The shirts went on sale this week, and will be available for purchase until Nov. 19th.
The Ty Pozzobon Foundation is aims to protect and support the health and well-being of rodeo competitors inside and outside the arena. It is named after champion Canadian bull rider Ty Pozzobon, who tragically took his own life after sustaining several concussions. (More information about Ty and his namesake foundation is below.)
The “B.S. with C.L.” tour winds its way across Western Canada this month, but it won't stop when it hits Winnipeg or comes to a close in Cadillac: Corb is set to pick up where he left off in February 2018, when he takes "B.S. with C.L." to Southern Ontario.
The Southern Ontario edition of "B.S. with C.L. will be short and sweet: Just 5 shows in mid-February, starting in Peterborough on Feb. 13, then visiting Bayfield Feb. 14; London on Feb 15; Toronto on Feb. 16; and Burnstown on Feb. 18.
Corb's “B.S. with C.L.” tour is being billed as “An Evening of Western Conversation, Songs, and Stories”—and it starts right now!
The tour kicks off tonight in Grande Prairie, where Corb added a second show after the first one sold out.
“Playing with my band is great, but doing solo shows is a totally different experience that allows me to be more creative and interact with the audience in a whole new way,” Corb says. “It’ll be a lot of fun, too.”
Corb will be in Calgary, Alberta tomorrow (Nov. 2) to perform alongside the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra. "Those folks are serious musicians," Corb says. "No pressure, right?"
This will be the second time Corb has performed with an orchestra, but it will be a first for him and the CPO, who will be backing Corb up and standing in for the Hurtin’ Albertans for this one-night-only performance.
"I played with the Edmonton Symphony a few years back, and when the string section kicks in behind you it’s pretty powerful," Corb says.
