Coming together as The Bombadils, four diverse musicians perform a combination of traditional and original music, both instrumental and vocal, English and French, improvised and through-composed. Anh Phung, on Irish whistles and flute, is a stunning presence and spunky improviser. She has twice been awarded the Galaxie Rising Star Award as well as 1st place in the Canadian Music Competition. Kooky and happy-go-lucky fiddler and vocalist, Sarah Frank has traveled the continent performing and studying with key figures of traditional folk music such as Peter Yarrow, Alasdair Fraser, Natalie Haas, Laura Cortese, and Pierre Shryer. Luke Fraser on guitar, mandolin, and lead vocals grew up on the musical traditions of Nova Scotia, where he has performed as part of the vibrant Maritime music scene, including at The Rankins' own Red Shoe Pub and the Halifax Jazz festival. Evan Stewart, upright bass, has performed at the Montreal Jazz festival and has shared the stage with award-winning musicians such as Steve Turre, Jim Head and Kent Sangster.
For the past three years they have been performing regularly throughout Québec at pubs and cafés, local dances, weddings and concerts. Since their graduation from McGill University's Schulich School of Music, The Bombadils have released their debut CD "Fill Your Boots!" and continue to perform across Canada.
The Eliot Street Coffeehouse, a co-production of the First Church in Jamaica Plain and notloB Parlour Concerts, is presented in the beautiful and acoustically sound First Church in JP's parish hall.
