Ellie Buckland & Isa Burke with The Bombadils
Ellie Buckland and Isa Burke are fiddlers and singer-songwriters from musical families who grew up surrounded by folk music. They met at a fiddle camp in the woods of Maine, their shared home state, and ended up studying together at Berklee College of Music. With two fiddles, two guitars, and two intertwining voices, they perform old folk songs, new Americana, and original songs in an acoustic roots style.
The Bombadils are a ridiculous and kind-hearted bunch of rascals disguised as a four-piece folk band. Originating from Vancouver, Edmonton, and Halifax, they met in 2009 at McGill University's Schulich School of Music in Montréal, where they were pursuing their studies in jazz and classical music. These musical influences carry over into their love of folk music which includes Irish, bluegrass and Canadian and American old time. thebombadils.com
