The Bombadils

Biography

Luke Fraser is a Maritimer from Nova Scotia. Sarah Frank is an Albertan prairie-girl. Together they are The Bombadils, and together they create beautiful harmonies and enchanting melodies. Using a framework of Canadian folk and contemporary bluegrass, their music features Luke’s guitar, mandolin, and vocal harmonies in perfect counterpoint to Sarah’s sweet-yet-powerful lead vocals, lyrical fiddle, and claw-hammer banjo. Innovative arrangements give their songs layer upon layer of sonically satisfying surprises. They have been nominated for two Canadian Folk Music Awards and were named Recording Artists of the Year by Folk Music Ontario in 2017. The Bombadils appeared on the Bandstand Stage during last year’s Festival, and they return this year will a full Main Stage set.
