Old Man Luedecke Announces Canadian Tour, Promises New Album

Old Man Luedecke Announces Canadian Tour, Promises New Album
Spring is almost upon us, and banjo-toting East Coast favourite Old Man Luedecke will be shaking off the winter blues by heading out on a Canadian tour in the coming months.

The outing begins in April and will last until the first week of June. It includes 23 Canadian shows that stretch from the Atlantic provinces all the way across to the West Coast. The bulk of the dates are with Winnipeg roots songwriter Del Barber.

Old Man Luedecke wrote this statement about the upcoming jaunt: "Well, after a quiet winter I'm hitting the road this spring. Gonna make a bunch of stops across the country. I have a beautiful EP I recorded last fall with Lake of Stew with some wonder on it but I'm also bringing around a pile of new tunes that i've recorded this winter in Nashville. That CD's gonna come out in the fall, but I thought I'd come pay my respects across the country first. Hope to see you."

In other words, expect a new album of folksy banjo tunes soon. Until then, see the schedule below,
