Old Man Luedecke Books Canadian Winter Tour, Takes Aim at Monsanto with New Single
As of late, banjo-toting East Coast troubadour Old Man Luedecke has been touring through the U.S., UK and Australia, but now he's back in Canada and is planning to hit the road in his home and native land.

The outing runs for well over a month from early February to mid-March. The songwriter will start in the Maritimes, heading across the Canadian Shield, going through the Prairies and making it all the way out to the West Coast. There are 26 shows in all. See the schedule below.

In addition to the tour, Luedecke has a new EP due out in early 2014. The details of the short-player haven't yet been confirmed, but it will include the single "Monsanto Jones." Scroll past the tour dates to watch the green screen video for the politically oriented song, which targets the GMO-producing biotechnology company Monsanto.
