Concert – Old Man Luedecke
November 23, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Old Man Luedecke is the recording name of two-time Juno Award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter and banjo player Chris Luedecke of Chester, Nova Scotia. His 2008 album, Proof of Love, won a 2009 Juno Award for traditional folk album of the year. In 2011, Luedecke won the same award for My Hands Are On Fire. In 2012 Tender is the Night was released and picked up a Juno nomination, as well as “Folk Album of the Year” from Music Nova Scotia. Domestic Eccentric was nominated for a Juno in 2016.
Easy Money, the latest album, picks up where Domestic Eccentric leaves off: four years farther down the road, dreaming about his ship coming in, still a parent but now grappling with the newness of middle age, dad jokes, love for an abiding partner, the death of a parent, along with some calypso-feeling local Nova Scotia history thrown in for good measure.
Guest appearances abound. There are performances by long-time collaborator and Grammy award-winning Tim O’Brien, Afie Jurvanen of Bahamas, and Fats Kaplin, who add piquant accents to the impeccable playing of Luedecke and a crack Montreal studio band of Mike O’Brien, Joshua Toal and Jamie Thompson.
