The Bombadils are a ridiculous and kind-hearted bunch of rascals disguised as a five-piece folk band. Originating from Vancouver, Edmonton, Toronto and Halifax, they met in 2009 at McGill University, in Montréal, where they are completing their studies in jazz and classical music. These musical influences carry over into their love of folk music which includes Québecois, Irish, and bluegrass styles.
"Like the belles of a bluegrass ball, the Doll Sisters are a cute duo putting out melancholy roots music, like a darker dixie chicks, or a more youthful Allison Krauss. In "Blue Skies Always," the songs message is hopeful, balancing the haunting dual vocals, weepy fiddle sighs, and spidery banjo playing against strong rhythmic strums, while "Sorrow," opens like a morning crest over a civil war battlefield, followed by the insistent banjo like the march of many doomed troops. Imagery aside, this rustic, and classic take on a simpler time of music, is admirable, and wholly enjoyable."
