Old Man Luedecke & Pat LePoidevin
Live at the Odd Fellows’ Ballroom
Old Man Luedecke isn’t afraid to put his neck on the line. His latest album, Tender Is The Night, goes beyond his beloved solo, banjo-driven folk tunes. Driving a Nashville band from beginning to end with his recognizable voice, this is an artist honing his cunning lyrical flair – tenderly pushing the boundaries of his storytelling with his unique mix of folk, bluegrass and pop hooks.
With skillful precision and a storyteller’s heart, Luedecke’s narrative-driven folk songs are playful, coy, and soul warming. Rich in metaphor, heart and instrumentation, Tender Is The Night muses on love, art and purpose. “I am running like everyone else. Laughing just to keep from crying. I am always trying to find a way to express,” says Luedecke. “I am a prisoner for my appreciation for language; language that moves me is language that is unusual. I feel like it’s an important thing I can contribute to songwriting.”
Born of a sleepy mountain town in British Columbia and built in equal parts by Scotland, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Ontario, and the Yukon, Pat LePoidevin is a songwriter strongly influenced by community. With an extensive songwriting resume and four albums to his name, LePoidevin has built a sizable fan base on relentless touring and standout performances at some of Canada’s most prestigious music festivals, including the Dawson City Music Festival and SappyFest. On stage, LePoidevin is like a warm light filtering through cold windows to frozen streets. His powerful, melodic vocals bring life to his songs. With friends and fans across the country, LePoidevin is at home wherever he is playing.
