FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 1, 2017 (Newfoundland and Labrador) – The Arts & Culture Centre (ACC) in partnership with the Atlantic Presenters Association (APA) and RADARTS are proud to bring Canadian Country music sensation Corb Lund’s solo show to all six ACCs in Newfoundland and Labrador from May 12-20. This tour is the first in the Canada 150 performance series celebrating Canada’s 150th anniversary that will see artists from all performing arts disciplines tour through Atlantic Canada over the next year.
With nine studio albums under his belt and multiple CCMA, JUNO, and industry awards, Corb Lund’s three-decade-long music career is a force to be reckoned with. His seventh album, “Cabin Fever” (2012) debuted at #1 on the Billboard Canadian Charts. Three of his albums have been certified GOLD, while his latest release, Things That Can’t be Undone
(2015), cemented his status as one of the top country storytellers, and placed him on Rolling Stone’s “10 New Country Artists You Need to Know.” The record received rave reviews from all parts of the globe.
The Native Albertan has no plans of slowing down anytime soon. Aside from the many summer festival appearances planned for his band, Corb will embark on his first SOLO tour in his home country starting April 30 and running until May 20, covering most of the Maritimes and Newfoundland and Labrador. This follows successful 2016 USA shows in New York, Washington, LA, and San Francisco among others.
“Playing solo is a lot of fun for me. I love my band, and will always want to play with them, but playing alone sometimes gives me a chance to stretch out as a storyteller, a singer and a guitar player,”
says Lund. “There’s so much space to play with in theatres that I’m really looking forward to it. I get to play songs I don’t normally play with the band, and some that I do play with the guys, I play a little differently. It’s also a lot of fun for me to talk a little about the stories and experiences behind the songs.”
Corb Lund will end his 2017 solo Atlantic Canadian tour in Newfoundland with stops at all six Arts & Culture Centres from May 12 – 20. Tickets are $30 each (HST & service charge included) and can be purchased online now at www.artsandculturecentre.com or by calling and visiting your local box office.
