Corb Lundrecently released his new album, Cabin Fever. He caught up with TC to dish on some of his recent shows, the new album, and other fun stuff.
What makes this record different from the others you’ve released in the past?
We were drunker when we recorded it. And we did a full 2nd acoustic verision of all the songs. And no click tracks, and hardly any overdubs, and we did it in Canada at our friend’s studio.
You recently did a string of shows with Ian Tyson at the Calgary Stampede, tell us about how that came about and fan reaction during the 100th Stampede.
It was fantastic, a big thrill for me. I had interviewed him live onstage during his book launch and wished we had guitars the whole two hours we were sitting there. I sold him on the idea of some acoustic shows where there would be no band, and we’d just talk back and forth a lot, and play on each others’ songs. It went over like gangbusters, but i was worried the night before the opening. If it nose dived, I didn’t want Ian mad at me…
