Stranger at the Wake

He may never have come close to commercial success, but veteran roots troubadour Al Tuck has long earned real peer respect (Feist calls him a living legend)  and love from music critics. He's already grabbing well-deserved rave reviews for this freewheeling new outing, his seventh studio album. Tuck has a laconic vocal drawl best showcased on the rambling narrative of the 10 minute-plus title cut and the shuffling "Paid In The Middle Of The Night". He is typically offbeat on "There Is A War", a tune a mite reminiscent of his pal Buck 65. Tuck recent had shows in Toronto, Montreal and St John on May 17.
