How can you not like a "banjo songster" from Chester, Nova Scotia? Old Man Luedecke does things the old-fashioned way, his vocal skills accompanied only by his 5-string. The story goes that the Old Man left Toronto for the Yukon wilderness, fell in love, moved to Halifax, then back to the Yukon and.... Sheesh. Like any good warbler, Mr. Luedecke's been around the block and it shows in his singing. A highly recommended act, Old Man Luedecke at the Black Sheep Inn on May 23 with the Sun Parlour Players would be time well spent.
