Scottish folk group and singing poet on stage at Harbourfront Theatre Sunday

SUMMERSIDE, P.E.I. – Two award-winning acts come together for one exceptional evening of folk and roots music at Harbourfront Theatre, Nov. 12, at 7:30 p.m.

Old Man Luedecke is a modern-day people’s poet, travelling bard and balladeer. He’s played around the world to an increasing fan base and won two JUNO awards in the process. Old Man Luedecke has always insisted on a solid poetic heft in the way he uses words, and highly personal stories are what have always connected him to the universal in his audience.

He sings, “You can’t fake a work of heart,” and to spend an evening with his music, you know that each of his songs is not only a work of art but a true work of heart.

 

 

The haunting strains of twin bagpipes have become a defining signature of Breabach – a chiming herald of Scottish folk being embraced by a new generation. The energetic five-piece delivers a thrilling and unique brand of contemporary folk music.

Those who have seen their live show will see why the group has earned international recognition on the folk and roots music scene as one of the UK’s most dynamic and influential bands.

“Old Man Luedecke and Breabach offer contrasting folk styles that when joined together somehow blend perfectly, said Kieran Keller, Harbourfront’s executive director. “Fans of Scottish, maritime, and bluegrass folk music won’t want to miss this unique pairing.”

Both Breabach and Old Man Luedecke come to the Harbourfront on Sunday as part of the Atlantic Presenters Association and RADARTS’ Canada 150 Performance Series.
