Old Man Luedecke


Old Man Luedecke is one of Canada’s best loved and most intriguing roots singer-songwriters. A masterful banjo player with a storyteller’s heart, his narrative-driven folk songs are playful, coy, and soul-warming; his music appeals to anyone looking for new growth from old roots. Equally at home on festival main stages, in theatres, or in living rooms, his honesty and charisma allow him to connect effectively with his audiences.  A resident of Chester Basin, NS, “Old Man” has released seven recordings. He earned back-to-back Juno awards for Proof of Love (2008) and My Hands are on Fire and Other Love Songs (2011).  His 2012 offering, Tender is the Night, received a Juno nomination and was named Folk Album of the Year at the Music NS awards.  Domestic Eccentric (2015) is Old Man’s most recent release and includes “The Early Days” – a song that resonates with parents everywhere.  This much-loved artist has appeared at four previous Folk Harbour Festivals, dating back to 2004.
