It's hard being the opening act on a sold out show. Everyone is there to see the headliner.
The headliner for this concert was The Deep Dark Woods, the venue was Toronto's The Great Hall and the opening act was Old Man Luedecke.
For Old Man Luedecke being the opener is never a problem. Within seconds he has the audience eating from the palm of his hand. His beautiful songs and his more than interesting between song banter is always sure to draw in the audience and keep them entertained.
Old Man Luedecke played an opening set which featured the debut of one of his new songs, 'Jonah and the Whale' as well as some fan favourites like the surprise set closer 'Banjo Underground'. Later he joined The Deep Dark Woods for a guest spot in their set where he was welcomed to the stage by rousing applause. He had won them over.
