HARRISBURG -- A crowd full of cowboys, hillbillies and other assorted country music fans filled the banquet hall at Morello's Saturday night to welcome Canadian alt-country musician Corb Lund to Harrisburg.
The native Albertan sang a lengthy set list, including songs from his platinum and two gold albums. When the concert "ended," he joked with the crowd yelling for "one more song."
"Normally, I'm able to walk offstage where you can't see me before I come back on," he said. "Tonight I don't have anywhere to go, so we're just going to pretend I walked off."
He then played several more songs for an encore, including covers of Patsy Cline's "Crazy" and Kenny Rogers' "Lucille."
Eldorado country musician Travis Beasley, who organized the concert sponsored by Legence Bank's American Farm Mortgage Co., opened the show. He also said he was thrilled to get the chance to see Lund play in Saline County.
"I figured out if I wanted to see Corb Lund play here, I'd have to do it myself," Beasley told the audience.
