The Hurtin’ Albertans

Kurt Ciesla, upright bass player for the Corb Lund Band, was raised in Lethbridge, Alberta. An extremely versatile musician, he is a former member of funk acts Blue Locutus and Bubba and is a familiar and respected musician in the Edmonton Jazz music scene. He has performed a number of times with the Lethbridge Symphony Orchestra, including a live concert on the MacIntyre Ranch. Kurt is all about the bass.

The very talented and capable Brady Valgardson of Taber, Alberta is the band’s drummer. Brady comes from a family of drummers and has performed with several bands in southern Alberta where he currently lives and works on his family farm.

Four-time CCMA All Star Band nominee Grant Siemens, a native of Winnipeg, lends his talents as a lead guitar, lap steel and banjo player, providing a refreshing fourth dimension to the band’s sound.
