Al Tuck hails from Charlottetown on beautiful Prince Edward Island in Canada. Over the past 20 years, Tuck has established himself as one of the world’s great songwriters and musicians, quietly releasing one stellar album after the next and earning the respect and admiration of any lyricist and guitarist who hears him. His latest album is Stranger at the Wake and was released by Cameron House Records earlier this year. It was longlisted for the Polaris Music Prize and earned critical accolades elsewhere and brings Tuck to the Halifax Pop Explosion this week. In September, Tuck joined me in-studio at CFRU for a good chat about Guelph, his status as a “cult figure,” his upbringing and early musical influences, his time in Halifax when its music scene was discovered by the international press, his songwriting, his voiceover work in films, his recent prolific streak of albums, the song “That Married Life” and much more.
