Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Corb Lund & the Hurtin' Albertans

Sun., Sept. 7, 7 p.m.

Singer and guitarist Corb Lund, a reverent student of American roots music, has become a minor star in his native Canada, but he’s struggling to build a following in the States. Thanks to a record deal with New West, that seems to be changing: because some of his earliest songs aren’t available in the U.S., Lund recently released Counterfeit Blues, a collection of 12 rerecorded tunes dating back to 2002, cut at Sun Studio in a quick two-day session that gives them a scrappy immediacy. Perhaps because he’s an outsider, he sounds comfortable in his own skin as he surveys a wide range of American folk and country styles from very different eras—the slap-bass rockabilly of “Big Butch Bass Bull Fiddle,” the western swing of “Little Foothills Heaven,” the honky-tonk of “Buckin’ Horse Rider,” the Bob Dylan-via-Woody Guthrie rhythms of “Truck Got Stuck,” and the outlaw-style 70s country of “Good Copenhagen” (which refers to chewing tobacco, not the Danish city). Lund’s a bit of a formalist, but he’s got a great set of pipes and a convincing ear for twang—for now at least, I’m still listening. —Peter Margasak $24, $22 for members
