Old Man Luedecke, the musical persona of the 2-time JUNO award-winning and Polaris prize-nominated songwriter and all-around radio darling Chris Luedecke, is a force to be reckoned with. A regular staple of CBC Renowned for his high-energy banjo-driven stompers, soul-stirring guitar ballads, and wryly humorous tales, Luedecke has been a captivating presence in the world of roots music for over fifteen years. His most recent offering, Easy Money (2019), is a collection of “island-tinged” original folk songs. A forthcoming album produced by Afie Jurvanen (aka Bahamas), is poised for release in 2024, promising a fresh musical journey for his devoted audience.

This Home Routes “Crankie” tour offers up a mix of roots and rhythm, with stories told under the backdrop of handmade Crankies created by James Culleton, a Winnipeg-based visual artist who weaves together art, and history, along with his English and French roots throughout his multimedia-based work.

A Crankie is a moving panorama, an old storytelling art form that was popular in the 18th century. Scrolled art is mounted on hand-cranked spindles held together in a frame. As music plays or a story is told, an artist cranks the spindles so that the picture moves with the story, creating a uniquely magical experience for the audience.
