About The Band:
Canadian Folk Music Award nominees The Bombadils, comprised of folk darlings Luke Fraser and Sarah Frank, bring together bluegrass and contemporary folk music with poetic lyrics and classical grace. Canadian arts journalist Bob Mersereau describes their music as “folk tunes done with musical adventure and sophistication” and Elmore Magazine calls it “an enchanting folk romp.”
The Bombadils met in 2009 while studying music at McGill University in Montreal, QC. In the years to follow, they began recording and touring throughout Canada, and internationally. Tour highlights include Koerner Hall in Toronto, ON, Tivoli Gardens in Denmark, and Wintergrass music festival outside Seattle, WA. In 2015 they released full-length album, “Grassy Roads, Wandering Feet,” quickly followed by “New Shoes” in 2016 which was nominated for two Canadian Folk Music Awards and won Folk Music Ontario’s Album of the Year award.
