Folk & Country: Year in Review 2010
The rosy-cheeked melodies of Old Man Luedecke's third album open up the kitchen door and invite you in to put your feet up. Once you're comfortable though, they bend your ear with some surprisingly biting observations about love, life and the appalling state of the world. The Nova Scotia singer-songwriter lays down plenty of hot licks on his signature banjo, but the fiddles and vocals of American Tim O'Brien give Luedecke's music a stronger bluegrass flavour than we've heard from him before.
