ABOUT AL TUCK:
Al Tuck is a genre-hopping, songwriter-troubadour, born and based in Canada’s smallest province, picturesque Prince Edward Island. If Canada had an official “songwriter’s songwriter” position, Al Tuck would be a strong contender for the role. Grammy-winning singer Feist has described him as a living legend in our midst. Juno-winners Joel Plaskett and Old Man Luedecke have trumpeted him as a major formative influence. Broken Social Scene’s Jason Collett dubbed him the greatest songwriter of his generation.
