Nepal, Junos and ECMA nominations, touring, vinyl, Australia in MayFebruary 19th 2016


On my way to Kansas City for a big meeting of the Folk Alliance. There are new dates up at the Tour page with many more to come as the winter continues. Of note are two special nights at Hugh’s Room in Toronto in April with Tim O’Brien  the producer of Domestic Eccentric.

I’m off to hike and play banjo in Nepal in March. Hopefully I’ll get overwhelmed by it all and disappear from social media but I’ll try and sneak some pictures onto Instagram.  Here’s a link to the tour if you are unbelievably impulsive and care to join: Nepal with Old Man Luedecke gigging in Tea Houses.

Domestic Eccentric, my most successful record to date has garnered a Juno award nomination and 2 ECMA nominations. I”m excited to attend both functions.

It’s available on vinyl now at True North here and in shops.

Oh, and I’ll be heading to The Planting at Woodford Festival in Queensland AUS at the end of April with other dates to follow around the east coast. Check back for details.,
