The Juno Award winning Halifax based musician just flew into Alberta to play a  spate of shows with long time collaborator Joel E Hunt still in support of his 2015 CD “Domestic Eccentric,” which is all about domestic bliss and home.
“The success of that CD has given me a pretty clear sense of purpose. There is a lot of stuff on the record. It’s 14 songs. People still want to hear the songs from it and I can’t get through all of the songs in a single show anyway,” Luedecke said from Camrose.
He has been busy touring and raising his family in Nova Scotia since his last visit to Lethbridge, two years ago.

“ I’ve been doing lots of playing, doing lots of fairs and I’ve toured in the  Australia and all over the United States,” he said.

 He has also written  a few songs and contributed songs to several different compilations including a  tribute to fellow Maritime musician Shotgun Jimmie.
The Lethbridge show will start early.

“I’ve been doing a lot of those lately. It’s better. You get a better listening audience at early shows. I’ll have songs , stories and humourous anecdotes to tell,” he said., adding the show will also feature the multi instrumental prowess of Hunt, who sings plus plays fiddle and mandolin.
“He’s been playing with me for six years now. He plays everything I don’t,” said Luedecke, who sings and plays banjo among other instruments.
Old Man Luedecke returns to the Slice, March 8  from 8-11 p.m.
