LISTEN TO: ‘CORB LUND – BLOOD, SWEAT & WATER” – A SONG FOR SOUTHERN ALBERTA
My song ‘Blood, Sweat and Water’ uses Stampede as a metaphor for the city’s courage, hard work and resilience. It’s a tribute to everyone who’s been toughing it out dealing with the flood damage in southern Alberta. The idea occurred to me after seeing all the work people had done to make Stampede happen this year. I wrote it in the last few days, and me and some of my Edmonton musician friends went in the studio and recorded it in a day.
I was really moved by how the organizers in Calgary were able to bounce back so quickly from the flood and go forward with the Stampede despite challenges I can’t begin to imagine. I think it did a lot for the morale of the city, and i know playing the Coke stage this year a was very moving and special experience for me and the guys in my band. I remember seeing the ‘Come Hell or Water’ graphic just days after seeing the worst of the flood photos.
Nice job Calgary; you handled yourself through this thing with a lot of class.
