Old Man Luedecke was born in Toronto but has made his home for years in the music rich maritime province of Nova Scotia. He is a young man with an old soul who doesn't sugar coat his fears and this lets his songs breathe with a fresh breeze of bittersweet hopefulness.
Luedecke has been a featured performer at all the major folk festivals in Canada and Australia and an increasing number of American festivals, like Strawberry in California. He has appeared with and shared the stage at concerts and soft seaters with such performers as Feist, Tim O'Brien, Joel Plaskett, David Francey, Buck 65, The Be Good Tanyas and Jill Barber. He has shared festival stages alongside Bela Fleck, Tim O'Brien, Jack Elliot, Kris Kristofferson, Ashley MacIsaac, and countless others. He has received great recognition for his works, including Juno Awards for Proof of Love and My Hands Are On Fire and Other Love Songs.
Old Man Luedecke, is one of Canada's best loved and most intriguing roots
singer-songwriters. An original, he is
a musical singularity to be
savoured and shared, says the Vancouver Folk Festival. His memorable
melodies, poetic sense and easy charisma appeal to anyone searching for new
growth from old roots.
Has just put out a 7-song EP with a full-length album to be released in the fall.
Old Man Luedecke will be joined by singer-songwriter from Winnipeg, Del Barber who has also just released an album. With all these creative juices flowing, this will be a show not to be missed!
