Old Man Luedecke

- (Doors: 7pm)

Cecil Sharp House, London

Old Man Luedecke, is one of Canada's best loved and most intriguing roots singer-songwriters. "An original, he is a musical singularity to be savoured and shared", says the Vancouver Folk Festival. His memorable melodies, poetic sense and easy charisma appeal to anyone searching for new growth from old roots.

Luedecke is a young man with an old soul, who doesn't sugar-coat his fears – his songs breathe with bittersweet hopefulness. He channels energy from giants such as Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger, with maybe a hint of Loudon Wainwright III. But it's Luedecke's contemporary lyrics coupled with the irresistible rhythm of the old-time banjo and his thumping foot that make him so loved. Clear and unadorned, his singing suits the sincerity of his tunes. And in the breaks come wild and charming stories of meeting heroes and easygoing but gripping musings on things ridiculous and sublime.

Equally at home on festival main stages, theatres and living rooms, he can also hold court in the occasional indie rock bar.
