Old Man Luedecke isn’t afraid to put his neck on the line.
Driving a Nashville band from beginning to end with his recognizable voice, this is an artist honing his lyrical flair – pushing the boundaries of his storytelling with his unique mix of folk, bluegrass and pop hooks.
Old Man Luedecke has a penchant for language.
The award-winning roots singer-songwriter’s latest album, “Tender Is the Night,” gives nod to F.R. Scott Fitzgerald’s famous novel, a title lifted from John Keats poem, “Ode to a Nightingale.”
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.
Australian Jordie Lane is not just another guitar wielding, hat wearing, beard sporting, love song singing troubadour. A closer listen reveals the love songs are epic tales based on historical figures, the protest songs feature lady-boys and fornicating dogs, and the guitar work takes you from early Dylan to southern blues.
You never know what to expect at a Jordie Lane show, and you get the feeling neither does he. Lane has that rare quality of being able to lure and capture his listeners with his playful charm, rhythmic finger picking, and most of all, that voice.
Tickets for the Feb. 5 show are $20+HST and are now on sale at www.peibrewingcompany.com.
