comes to Prince George.




If you are home (in Prince George) for the holidays and you want to take your friend, signficant other, or a perfect stranger out for a good time check out the Corb Lund Band playing at Vanier Hall December 20, 2005.
Think of it as a cultural experience seeking to learn about your neighbors to the East.

"Corb Lund grew up 'in Southern Alberta, in the foothills of the Rockies.' His music is influenced by his experiences riding horseback, chasing cattle and rodeoing in Southern Alberta and living on the family farm and ranches near Taber, Cardston and Rosemary. Coming from four generations of ranchers and cowboys, Corb left his hometown of Taber and moved to Edmonton where he attended Grant MacEwan Performing Arts School to study jazz guitar and bass." (Corb Lund 2005)

You may have heard Corb Lund and the Hurtin' Albertans on Prince George's local 97.3 "The Wolf Fm." This would be a good place to check the band's latest single to preview it and see if it is worth the $25 ticket for you.

These guys are pretty great. two of my closest friends go see them as often as they can. I haven't yet but my one friend plays the CDs quite frequently in her truck (she's a true Albertan), so I get to hear them there. ;)

I agree, a very cultural experience Leah. Although I'm not so sure on the "Hair in my eyes like a highland steer" phrase. Isn't that a little something like "Business in the front, party in the back" hair? Interpreting for those of you who don't know, that's otherwise known as a mullet. get 'er done! Just kidding, I love these guys! Thanks for publishing the plug!
