Double bill features two talented, award-winning Canadian folk acts

by on January 30, 2015


Two Juno-winning folk acts will perform on the Playhouse stage on Wednesday, February 18 at 7:30 p.m. This special double bill features the funny and upbeat Good Lovelies and talented narrative-driven singer-songwriter Old Man Luedecke.

The Good Lovelies are a Toronto-based trio known for their constant instrument swapping and witty stage banter. Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough and Sue Passmore were friends first when they decided to make the leap from their day jobs and head out on the road making music across Canada in 2006.

This award-winning group excels at combining lighthearted songwriting with their irresistibly buoyant dispositions for a blithe brand of folk music with universal appeal.

Based in Chester, N.S., Old Man Luedecke tenderly pushes the boundaries of storytelling with a unique mix of folk, bluegrass and pop hooks. His latest album, Tender is the Night, is rich in metaphor, heart and instrumentation, showcasing the musician’s confidence in himself and his art.

Known for crafting narrative-driven folk songs that are playful, coy and soul-warming, Old Man Luedecke will have audiences hanging on his every word.

The Playhouse also invites ticketholders to the West Gallery at 6:30 p.m. on February 18 for a beer tasting. Picaroons Traditional Ales will be on hand with four varieties of beer to sample during this special pre-show event.

Tickets for the Good Lovelies and Old Man Luedecke are available through the Fredericton Playhouse box office at 458-8344 or online at
