Modelling himself on the ruffian qualities of pure folk and bluegrass, Nova Scotia’s Old Man Luedecke is the real thing, a modern-day people’s poet, travelling bard, and balladeer. He’s played around the world to an increasingly adoring fan base and won two JUNO Awards in the process. Rarely has anyone written so honestly, openly, or with such aching tenderness and good humour. The Vancouver Folk Festival calls him, “an original . . . a musical singularity to be savoured and shared.”
If you’re yearning for music that draws new sounds from old roots, join Old Man Luedecke for a set of unforgettable melodies, poetic lyrics, and unmatched stage presence.
This concert is part of Canada Scene’s free Scene@6 series. Running every evening at 6:00 from July 2 to 23, the series showcases this country’s top folk, roots, world, and jazz artists in the NAC’s new Atrium.
