Carlton Shows, Christmas Play, South East US Shows•December 5th 2014
Hey, long time no speak. Been writing and recording and working towards a new album. Just had a great trip out West including a night at the Banff Centre where I heard the great Robert Lepage speak. He was pretty inspiring and spoke of the intelligence of audiences and many wonderful things.
Have two more shows this year in Halifax at the Carlton this week! Monday and Tuesday will see me aided by the estimable Joel E. Hunt and supported by Willie Stratton at the Carlton in Halifax
Check the shows page for details
Also very excited to be going to North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia the first week of the New Year. An awesome festival in Raleigh called First Night will see me performing solo and in collaboration. I’ll also make my first appearance on WDVX’s Blue Plate Special.
Also I’m appearing in the Chester Christmas Play next week singing a couple of tunes.

Thanks Canada! The Old Man Luedecke “I Never Sang Before I Met You” Winter Tour was a Smash. Thanks everyone from St. John’s to Dawson City who came to the shows and saw me and the trio with Joel E. Hunt and Brian Kobayakawa. Also how great was Jordi Lane? What a blast we all had.
