Old Man Luedecke takes the stage at Trailside Music Cafe' & Inn in Mount Stewart with shows Friday and Saturday.
One man alone on stage with his banjo and a driving rhythm punctuated by the stomping of his boots on a wooden floor, Luedecke’s name and choice of instrument may suggest a world gone by, but the lyrics and melodies that he creates are contemporary.
Yet, somewhere inside the propulsive grooves, there is still hear the unbroken line that connects Luedecke’s music to the bygone world of Bascom Lunsford, Ralph Stanley and Pete Seeger.
"Nodding your head and smiling from ear to ear is how I describe an Old Man Luedecke show," says owner Pat Deighan, "also, one not to be missed."
Tickets to hear this musician with a storyteller’s heart and narrative-driven folk songs that are playful, coy and soul-warming are available at www.trailside.ca, Back Alley Music or 902-394-3626. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with music starting at 8 p.m.
