Iconic artist performing in Cranbrook this November

A rural Albertan hailing from the foothills of the Rocky Mountains with a long family lineage of ranchers and rodeo people, Corb Lund is about as authentic as they come, and equally as hard to define.

The western Canadian singer-songwriter is an elusive artist, onstage, offstage, and in the studio-seamlessly weaving between the outlaw country, Western, and indie-folk realms with an honest curiosity and rowdy devotion to each.

He was raised with the tried and true DIY sentiment of “if you want something done, you gotta do it yourself,’’ launching his career recording in his basement, printing his own shirts, booking his own tours, being his own manager and publicist…whatever it took to get it done.

He toured for years with the indie-metal band, The Smalls, and later turned his sights to writing Western songs, creating a rather unique and quirky hybrid writing style along the way.

Corb Lund has received multiple domestic and international award wins and nominations. In 2022, Lund won his 14th career Canadian Country Music Award and made his debut at the historic Grand Ole Opry earlier this year as well. He has three Gold albums to his credit,  and his latest album released in February of this year, EL VIEJO was highly acclaimed. The album features all original songs, and the title song is a tribute to his long-time friend Ian Tyson.

You can spend an intimate evening with the thinking cowboy’s troubadour in Cranbrook at the Key City Theatre on Nov. 28.

Tickets are available at the Key City Theatre box office at noon on May 10, or online at or by calling 250-426-7006.
