Unity College Centre for the Performing Arts, 42 Depot St., will present a singer/songwriter evening with Catherine McLellan, Ryan LeBlanc and Old Man Luedecke Thursday, May 27 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10.

McLellan’s last album, “Church Bell Blues,” hit No. 1 on the iTunes Canada Roots charts, received critical acclaim from around the world and comparisons to Joni Mitchell. She toured with Bruce Cockburn in the United States and with Steve Forbert in the United Kingdom; and has showcased in Paris, Cannes, Berlin, New York, London and Memphis.

“Against the Grain” is LeBlanc’s appropriately titled ECMA-winning album; after all, his approach to playing music is anything but conventional. Weaving together rich acoustic guitar tones, claw hammer banjo and harmonica, he creates layered melodic soundscapes rhythmically underpinned by cajon and djembe.

Luedecke is one of Canada’s best loved and most intriguing roots singer/songwriters. His memorable melodies, poetic sense and easy charisma appeal to anyone searching for new growth from old roots. Luedecke is a young man with an old soul who channels a refreshing energy from folk giants like Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger with maybe a hint of Loudon Wainwright III.
