The Bombadils

Nova Scotian maritimer Luke Fraser and Alberta prairie-girl Sarah Frank create beautiful harmonies and enchanting melodies with old folk songs, poetry, and original songs in a Canadian folk and contemporary bluegrass framework. 
They made a guest appearance at the club about 5 years ago when Georgia Lewis & Friends were playing, so it's about time we got them back for a full gig!
