Old Man Leudecke "The Early Days" (video)
Published Jun 11, 2015Banjo-plucking Maritime fave Old Man Leudecke recorded his new album Domestic Eccentric in a cabin behind his house in Chester, NS. Now, we can get a glimpse inside of the structure thanks to his new video for "The Early Days."
In the simple black and white clip, we see Leudecke strumming the gentle folk ditty before a couple of his buddies join in with rustic accompaniment.
"It was shot in the cabin I built in the woods behind my house where we made the record," Luedecke said in a statement. "It starts with footage from inside the backhoe we had to hire to plow a road through the three and a half feet of snow to the cabin to get the gear in. You can hear Tim O'Brien and I discussing playing the individual strings of a chord to kick off the song just like the songs on Ralph Stanley's Clinch Mountain Gospel album. It looks like we're having fun making the record, I think. The end shots are from my 39th birthday party that same night."
Check out the clip below. Domestic Eccentric is due out on July 24 through True North Records.
