The County has officially proclaimed twenty-twenty as the year to gather. To gather a basket full of local produce, meats, and spirits from a local farm store or market. To gather your friends and family around a big table (or kitchen island), to celebrate each other and the local bounty before you. To gather around a restaurant table and appreciate the love the chefs bring to your plate. It’s the year of you, and your connection to this place through the food you eat and the people you spend time with.
The Oldest Man I Know is a high energy, punk inspired folk band from Kitchener Ontario. Playing traditional instruments untraditionally, and take influence from such bands as Trampled by Turtles, Rail Yard Ghosts, NoFX, and Mama's Broke.
The Oldest Man I Know started out as the solo banjo project of Taylor Esch, but since setting roots in the twin cities (Kitchener-Waterloo) in 2017, the project has grown into a full acoustic band.
The Oldest Man I Know released their first full length album "TOMIK" in the spring of 2019 and are currently working on new material for a follow up album.
