Brevik Hall Presents RBC Emerging Artist Series
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. Luke’s guitar, mandolin, and harmonies are the ideal counterpoint to Sarah’s sweet-yet-powerful vocals, lyrical fiddle and claw-hammer banjo. Innovative arrangements give their songs layer upon layer of sonically satisfying surprises. They tour internationally, bringing their East Coast influences beyond our borders to increasing fame.

A Programmer’s Note from Jane
Part of the many joys of my work is connecting with our audience and their musical passions. I particularly love it when this dovetails with bringing their picks to the stage. Such is The Bombadils. A couple of our guests who love to discover new music were enthusiastic in their praise of this group, whom they had discovered recently and felt would be a perfect fit for us – what with their Nova Scotia base, Celtic & folk roots mixed in with pop influences. Plus, they added, they’re a wicked live show. That send me scurrying to my trusty sources – and after a bit of back-and-forth trying to find a date that worked for all of us – we lured them to Ontario for our series. Come and see what all the fuss is about!
And, if you find someone you think might be a great fit for our Aurora audience, please drop me a line at janetaylor[at]auroraculturalcentre[dot]ca . I can’t guarantee we’ll book them, but I will give them a listen as I continue my never-ending quest to bring new artists to our stage. Thank you!
