Old Man Luedecke at the Victoria Playhouse

Old Man Luedecke is the real thing, a modern-day people’s poet and travelling bard and balladeer. He’s played around the world to a loving and increasing fan base, and won two Juno awards in the process.

Not since Loudon Wainwright III has anyone written so honestly, so openly, or with such aching tenderness and good humour about family life. Luedecke has always insisted on a solid poetic heft in the way he uses words, and highly personal stories are what have connected him to the universal in his audience.

Old Man Luedecke’s intimate songs and infectious old-time banjo and guitar welcome you into his world.

His most recent album,“Domestic Eccentric”, is a record about home. It’s about what it means to be a still-youngish man, what it’s like to still be in love with the woman you married a decade ago, about what it’s like to watch your own babies grow to children, and about the joys and sorrows attendant upon the milestones of parenthood.

“You got to hold on, it goes so fast, these early days they don’t last” Early Days.

Old Man Luedecke is at the Victoria Playhouse on August 28th.
