The Bombadils with Street Meat
Hello Darlin' Productions
Hello Darlin' Presents: The Bombadils!
The Bombadils are a five-piece ensemble based out of Montréal, Québec. They met in 2009 shortly after beginning their classical and jazz studies in music performance at McGill University. The band shares an eclectic variety of musical interests, which they bring together to create a unique, folk inspired sound. It is their sense of discipline and attention to detail, acquired through their formal experience and training, that helps them create a sound that is at once accessible and virtuosic.
Luke Fraser grew up in Nova Scotia and has been heavily influenced by east-coast music. He brings the sound of the Maritimes to the stage with his dynamic mandolin and tenor banjo playing. After finishing his undergrad at Dalhousie University in Halifax, he moved to Montreal to continue his studies at McGill, where he is completing a master's degree in Classical Guitar performance. Luke has played gigs all over the Maritimes in a Celtic duo with Tristan Legg and continues to do so when he is not playing with The Bombadils.
