Old Man Luedecke supporting album

Posted on November 21, 2019 by Richard Amery

There is a lot of indie folk and roots music happening this weekend. The Lethbridge Folk Club welcomes Nova Scotia musician Old Man Luedecke, a.k.a. Chris Luedecke, back to Lethbridge for a show at the Lethbridge College Cave, Nov. 23. Luedecke and his band are touring in support of his new CD “Easy Money.” Reid and Writes open the show at 8 p.m. sharp. Tickets are $30 for non-members, $25 for members and $15 for students.
Luedecke is competing with a big Geomatic Attic show at the University Theatre featuring Hawksley Workman and his band, which also begins at 8 p.m. sharp. Workman is also touring in support of a new CD, “Median Age Wasteland.” Tickets are $45. The Geomatic Attic have an eventful week as they also sponsor Montreal-born, Vancouver-based jazz musician Andrea Superstein playing the Mortar and Brick Gallery, Monday, Nov 25.
But before that, the roots begins early at The Slice as Grande Prairie Matt Patershuk returns to Lethbridge in support of his new CD “If Wishes Were Horses,” which has already topped the charts at CKUA. His music includes folk, country, roots, blues and even a little jazz. He plays the Owl Acoustic Lounge on Wednesday, Nov. 20.
On Thursday, Tyler Bird hosts the Slice’s open mic.
It will be a fun weekend. On Friday night, Slice server Megan Rourke celebrates her birthday with a little help from October Poppy, a.k.a. Vernon musician Eryn Kleyh.
Even Good Times has music this weekend as they feature Wendy Colby, a.k.a. Penelope Rose. She is on stage from 8-10:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the door. She plays ethereal, spacious soundscapes.
Laugh along with Vancouver-born comic Alex Biron at Good Times on Nov. 23, where he will be performing at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. And local rock band the Cayley play the Owl Acoustic Lounge on Friday as well.
Casino Lethbridge goes country for the weekend with Suzanne Scott and the Dusty Rose band.
If you missed them this weekend, Papa King and the Boogiemen are back at the Slice Nov. 23 as well, playing some blues music.
Grande Prairie roots musician Matt Patershuk returns to the Owl Acoustic Lounge almost exactly a year to the day from when he was last here at the same venue.
He plays the Owl Acoustic Lounge Nov. 20 with bandmates, lead guitarist Ben Longman, bassist Jeremy Holmes and drummer Liam macDonald.
“And I think I’ve talked Shaela Miller into singing a couple songs with us,” chuckled Patershuk, who kicks off a quick tour of Alberta and B.C. In support of his brand new CD, “If Wishes Were Horses,” which has already topped the charts on CKUA a week after its release.
“A week or 10 days is about as much time as I can be away from work and my family,” said Patershuk from his acreage near Grande Prairie, where he has been living for the past 13 years.
He recorded the new CD with Steve Dawson in Vancouver. “We recorded it over four days in Vancouver and did a few more overdubs in his studio in Nashville,” he continued.
“He’s playing steel guitar and slide guitar and it is really beautiful. I listen to it a lot, not just for pleasure, but when I’m getting ready to go out on tour and there’s a couple of things that he does that just stop me in my tracks,” he said.
“We’re so comfortable together, I wouldn’t want to work with anyone else. We’ve become friends. And we always know where we want to go musically.”
“One thing that’s different about this album is there’s an instrumental that we play four different ways, which is a running theme throughout the album,” he said, adding he continues to explore a lot of different types of music on the CD.
“There’s country and folk and blues, rock and honky tonk music. I listen to all of that stuff. So when I sit down and badly copy it, this is what comes out,” he chuckled.
“I’m just thankful people will come out to the shows and listen to it,” he continued.
Patershuk’s concert starts at 8 p.m. Admission is by donation.
