Anyone who's ever been to Wakefield, Quebec's Black Sheep Inn knows that it's one of the loveliest and most-loved music venues in Canada. And, if you haven't yet been to the Black Sheep, you might want to pop your cherry by hitting one of the three shows Juno winner Old Man Luedecke is playing there this December.
Old Man Luedecke is not nearly as old as he'd have you think, but judging by the stunning quality of the songs on his 2010 release My Hands are on Fire and other Love Songs you'd think he'd spent a lifetime honing his craft. And though he won a Juno in 2009, this year, 2010, has been an especially sweet one in his collection.

And if you think that's easy peasy-type stuff, you're dead wrong, Dexter.
He even was nominated for a CBC Radio 3 Bucky Award for the song "Foreign Tongue,"
