Let’s get one thing straight if you’re new to Nova Scotia bluegrass-country musician and banjo picker Old Man Luedecke: he’s not an old man. Not really, though he’s a man wise beyond his years. And, of course, “Old Man”—that’s not his real name. It’s Chris. And, in many respects ….
Old Man Luedecke has gone full Nashville on his fifth album. And it sounds like he had a fine old time doing it. With warm production enhancing his distinctive vocals and a full band of professional studio musicians behind him, the Chester, NS banjo-player's exuberance shines through from the first notes of bluegrass-y opener "Kingdom Come." Recorded at the Butcher Shoppe in Nashville by the renowned Dave Ferguson (Johnny Cash), the album owes its flawless production to Grammy Award-winning musician Tim O'Brien, who also lent his vocal and instrumental skills to Luedecke's 2010 release.
