The Bombadils are a young duo from Canada who met when they both studied music at McGill University in Montreal and now share their talents to delighted audiences all across North America. Their music is sometimes called “classical folk” because of their obvious sophistication and expertise and the frequent addition of a cellist. The husband and wife duo (Luke Fraser and Sara Frank) play differing combinations of violin, guitar, banjo, and mandolin. Their repertoire includes bluegrass, Americana, and traditional Canadian folk as well as their own originals. They won the Canadian Folk Music Ontario’s “Album of the Year”award and were granted an official showcase at the 2019 NERFA ( Northeast Regional Folk Alliance) conference. John Apice of the music magazine “No Depression” said of them that they “should already be sharing the stage with the likes of Iris, John Prine, Roseanne Cash and Emmy Lou Harris…” This will be an evening of pure joy.
