I purchased the digital download of Old Man Luedecke’s shiny new live album, One Night Only! Live at the Chester Playhouse.
I was lucky to take in Old Man Luedecke’s performance on this tour in my hometown of Summerside last year. He is a superb storyteller and a great performer. I enjoyed it very much.
I had the chance to shake his hand after the show and say hi. I let him know his music was a constant companion of mine as I spent a lot of time working on my computer and often choose one album to listen to on repeat all day long. It’s a fairly short list of albums I choose from most of the time.
I mentioned that my favourite music of his was Monsanto Jones and I was hoping he might have played it, but of course, I enjoyed the show. He spoke lively, “Oh, you should have told me! We could have played it.”
I asked, “What, just shout out from the crowd?”
“Yeah,” he said. “Sure!”
I told him, “I will the next time” and I really hope he’s not annoyed about it the next time I see him on stage, because I won’t forget!
He only spoke with me for a moment, then excused himself to collect a beverage before we made our separate ways back into the Harbourfront Theatre auditorium where Breabach was taking to the stage.
Thanks Aaron for inviting me out!
Here’s this little tune I like so much, Monsanto Jones. Now I need to listen to this new album which has long since finished downloading!
