Old Man Luedecke

Old Man Luedecke

Canada's Old Man Luedecke, actually a fairly youthful guy, isn’t afraid to put his neck on the line. His latest album, "Tender Is The Night" (giving a nod to F. Scott Fitzgerald and his inspiration, John Keats), goes beyond his beloved banjo-driven folk tunes. This is an artist honing his cunning lyrical flair, pushing the boundaries of his storytelling with his unique mix of folk, bluegrass and pop hooks. Old Man Luedecke’s narrative-driven folk songs are playful, coy, and soul-warming. Rich in metaphor, heart and instrumentation, they muse on love, art, and purpose. “I am running like everyone else. Laughing just to keep from crying. I am always trying to find a way to express,” says this Nova Scotia-based songwriter. “I am a prisoner for my appreciation for language; language that moves me is language that is unusual. I feel like it’s an important thing I can contribute to songwriting.”
