Canadian road dog and roots singer/songwriter Corb Lund will share the stage at Rhythm & Brews tonight with Chattanooga ex-pat Peewee Moore.

An Alberta native, Lund was formerly the lead singer of ’90s speed-metal band The Smalls. He since has pulled a stylistic 180, and he and his band, The Hurtin’ Albertans, now ride the fence between folk and electrified alt-country.

A fourth-generation cowboy, Lund’s most recent album, “Cabin Fever,” his eighth, was written in a remote cabin he built an hour outside Edmonton, Alberta. The album received a four-star (of five) rating from AllMusic.com following its Aug. 13 release.

Reviewer Mark Deming wrote that the album combined a “classic Western sound with a darkly witty rock & roll sensibility.”

“His tales of too-fast motorcycles and hot rockin’ gals prove the heart of a rocker co-exists with the soul of a cowboy,” Deming said. “The dry, lonesome twang of the six-strings and the steel mesh beautifully with his rich, emotive, but unfussy vocals.”

Tonight’s show is the latest on a tour supporting “Cabin Fever” and will follow a string of dates in the Southwest. He will continue up the East Coast following his Scenic City date.

Lund’s brother on the bill, Moore, was formerly co-lead singer and guitarist with local rockabilly outfit The Tennessee Rounders. Moore left Chattanooga a couple of years ago to move to Austin, Texas, but has frequently returned to haunt Chattanooga stages.
