Bruce Connelly joins the group as guest narrator and will intersperse the music with readings for the season, including poetry, excerpts from novels, short stories, and other literary works.

Nick records with Old Man Luedecke and Tim O’Brien, new CD to be released in June

From Old Man Luedecke, on his new recordingLuedeckeSession2015:

“Very exciting news round here is a new album in the works. We’ll get it out by June in time for the festivals this summer. 2 weeks ago tonight I picked up Tim O’Brien and his lovely gal Jan at the airport in Halifax quite late for an inspired week of music making in a beautiful cabin I built by hand on my land. Can’t wait to share the results. My first recording project I’ve done at home and the first that required a backhoe to clear a road through the snow to get the studio gear in. Exciting. Look for it on True North records sometime in June or July, inshalla.”
