He’s not really that old, but he is a man. Old Man Luedecke is a singer / songwriter who plays the banjo and follows the traditions of Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger. I saw him play at Sappyfest and his great banjo picking, strong voice, and neat lyrics sound both old and new. He’s a talented guy and when I went up and talked with him I liked him even more. Generous and unpretentious he was going to give me a CD of Hinterland and let me send him a cheque for it. I went to a bank machine and gave him the money and listened to the CD as I drove home from Sackville and have been playing it frequently ever since.
