Concerts for January, 2015


Friday, January 2nd 
Old Man Luedecke
8:00 PM @ the Community Arts Cafe, 411 West 4th St., W-S
Cover: $12/$10 F&B/CAC members 
Old Man (Chris) Luedecke is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and instrumentalist who has won multiple Juno Awards (the Canadian Grammy).   Based in Chester, Nova Scotia, Old Man (if you will) has just released his fifth album, "Tender Is the Night," recorded in Nashville with Tim O'Brien producing and adding mandolin, fiddle, bouzouki, guitar and vocals to Luedecke's guitar and banjo.  With skillful precision and a storyteller's heart, Luedecke's narrative-driven folk songs are playful, coy, and soul warming and rich in metaphor, heart and instrumentation. His 2009 album "Proof of Love" won the Juno award for Best Traditional Folk Album.  His music has been described as a mix of folk, bluegrass, and pop hooks.  Canada has long had a reputation for producing some of the best folk music there is (see Gordon Lightfoot, Stan Rogers, Garnet Rogers, James Keelaghan, etc.) and Old Man Luedecke continues that tradition in fine form.


Friday, January 16th 
Mustard's Retreat
8:00 PM @ the Community Arts Cafe, 411 West 4th St., W-S
Cover: $12/$10 F&B/CAC members 
Mustard's Retreat is David Tamulevich and Michael Hough based in Ann Arbor, Michigan.  They have been performing together for 40 years and during that time have recorded 12 albums, done 4000 performances and traveled over one million miles.  Garnet Rogers, who produced their landmark album "The Wind and the Crickets" said of them, "The thing that always impresses me is the incredible openness they have with the audience.  They stand up there and just radiate friendliness; the audience is included in the whole process, encouraged to sing along and talk back." 
Both Tamulevich and Hough are grounded in the music of the 60's folk boom and their music is an eclectic blend of old and new songs and a healthy dash of storytelling.  They claim to never have performed the same show twice and each show is unique and built around the audience they are performing for.  We're excited to be bringing this talented duo to our stage for the first time.
