The Bombadils at the Tree House Bookshop

Tuesday 30th July 2024 from 19:30

The Bombadils offer stirring and intimate lyrics with intertwining string-band arrangements, and tinges of bluegrass. Canadian arts journalist Bob Mersereau calls it "folk tunes done with musical adventure and sophistication" and Elmore Magazine, "an enchanting folk romp." 

Making their home in the foggy port city of Halifax, Canada, the band features folk darlings Sarah Frank and Luke Fraser accompanied by guests from their extended musical community. Tour highlights include Koerner Hall in Toronto, Tivoli Gardens in Denmark, and Wintergrass festival outside Seattle. 

Their recent release, Dear Friend comes after having moved to Atlantic Canada and launching straight into the rush of new parenthood, a new city, and a global pandemic. The 11-song album was recorded between lockdowns and daycare pick-ups, and it is a series of love letters of a certain kind—to family and friends, strangers and neighbours, cities and landscapes, and to each other. For this album The Bombadils were named Vocal Group of the Year at the 2024 Canadian Folk Music Awards, alongside nominations for Ensemble of the Year and Single of the Year. Other accolades for Dear Friend include the 2023 Music Nova Scotia award for Americana/Bluegrass recording of the year and three East Coast Music Award nominations.

Doors 7pm, music starts at 7.30pm.
