(WHEATLEY, ON) – The Road to FolkFest has announced the upcoming appearance of 2015 Kingsville Folk Festival high energy group, the Bombadils, on Thursday, January 12, 2017, at the Car Barn Restaurant, in Wheatley.
Canadian maritimer Luke Fraser and prairie-girl Sarah Frank share a love of folk songs and fiddle tunes. Drawing from the Canadian, American, and Celtic traditions, the two pour the spirit of story-telling and kitchen parties into their own writing.
Luke brings guitar, mandolin, and home-grown east coast vocals in harmony with Sarah’s singing, lyrical fiddle playing, and claw-hammer banjo.
Luke and Sarah grew up listening to The Beatles and Beethoven on cassette tapes, often re-wound with a chewed up pen, and both trained classically at McGill University in Montreal.
They released their first album, Fill Your Boots! in 2012 and in the years following went on tour throughout Canada, the US, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe. In 2015 they released their second album, Grassy Roads, Wandering Feet, and performed at folk festivals across North America, sharing stages with acts including The Duhks, David Francey, Bruce Molsky, and De Temps Antan.
Doors open at the Car Barn at 7:00pm with the show beginning at 7:30pm. Tickets are just $20 per person, and available are by calling 519-825-7436 or at Guardian Drugs in Wheatley, Fletchers Cleaners in Leamington, or Box Office Video in Kingsville.
