The Flying Steamshovel will be hosting two notable shows in February:  Juno Award-winnning “Old Man Luedecke” performs there on February 2nd, and Juno-Award nominee “Yukon Blonde” performs on February 10th.

Old Man Luedecke won Juno Awards in 2009 and 2011, both for “Traditonal Folk Album of the Year,” and was nominated again in 2012.   Chris Luedecke hails from Chester, Nova Scotia.  

He was the recipient of a Music Nova Scotia Americana/Bluegrass Recording of the Year Award for  “I Never Sang Before I Met You” and also got invited to go play banjos and have dinner with Steve Martin, “which I haven’t recovered from,” says Luedecke.

His genres are  Bluegrass, Alternative Country, and Folk.  For a sample of his sound, try this link.

Yukon Blonde was nominated for the Juno Award for “Breakthrough Group of the Year” in 2013.  This indie rock band was born in Kelowna, and has played — sold out! — here at the Steamshovel before.

If you haven’t heard them before and would like a preview, go to their website here and choose something.  

Tickets for Old Man Luedecke are $10 each for the first  50 sold, then they go up to $15 each.  

For Yukon Blonde, tickets are $20 each for the first 50 sold, then they go up to $25 each.

Opening acts are expected to start between 9:30 and 10:00 pm, and the main acts go on around 11:00 pm.
