Corb Lund Stars On The Big Screen In Guitar Lessons - The Movie

“Corb is a consummate professional. We’ve known each other for years; his love and interest in the arts goes beyond music. I knew he’d studied acting in NYC and had small roles in other projects I’ve done. I wrote the part of Ray for myself to play – then realized Corb would be the better choice – and he was. Corb brought a strength and vulnerability to the role that we would be hard to match.”

Canadian country music artist, Corb Lund is not only back on tour – he is also making is debut on the silver screen this fall.  The chart-topping recording artist of such classics as, Five Dollar Bill, Truck Got Stuck, and Time to Switch to Whiskey, took a break from the Hurtin’ Albertans last summer to play Ray Mitchell, a cantankerous oilfield contractor in the feature film, Guitar Lessons.

Guitar Lessons is the story of a 15-year-old Metis boy named Leland (KADEN NOSKIYE) who inherits an old guitar from a father he never knew.  Determined to learn to play, Leland starts bothering a local contractor, Ray (CORB LUND), who is reputed to have been something of a rock star back in the day, to give him lessons.  After repeated refusals and brush-offs, Ray starts to see something of himself in the lost boy and his broken guitar.  After eight stitches and a fight with the banker (Roseanne Supernault), guitar lessons finally commence; and the two orphans, one 15 and one 50, learn to grow up together over their Guitar Lessons.

Guitar Lessons is written and directed by award-winning Canadian director, Aaron James (Hank Williams First Nation, Campus Radio).

When asked what it was like directing Corb Lund, Aaron James replies:

“Corb is a consummate professional.  We’ve known each other for years; his love and interest in the arts goes beyond music.  I knew he’d studied acting in NYC and had small roles in other projects I’ve done.  I wrote the part of Ray for myself to play – then realized Corb would be the better choice – and he was.  Corb brought a strength and vulnerability to the role that we would be hard to match.”
