For fans of trad-based musical virtuosity, humour and flat-out entertainment, The Bombadils and James Hill & Anne Janelle share a night at The Carleton on Wednesday, May 10th. Show time is 8 PM and tickets are $15.
Canadian maritimer Luke Fraser and prairie-girl Sarah Frank share a love of folk songs and fiddle tunes. Drawing from the Canadian, American, and Celtic traditions, the two pour the spirit of story-telling and kitchen parties into their own writing. Luke brings guitar, mandolin and home-grown east coast vocals in harmony with Sarah’s singing, lyrical fiddle playing and claw-hammer banjo.
Together, James Hill and Anne Janelle craft a sound that is intricate, enchanting and engaging: a crystal clear sound filled with warmth – Bob Mersereau, CBC. In concert, James is a dazzling performer with a genial, low-key sense of humour – Edmonton Journal and Anne brings her gorgeous syrupy voice – Acoustic Magazine to songs that are “inventive, entertaining, beautifully written and brilliantly performed” (R2 Magazine).
In short, a night out with James & Anne is “the perfect evening of tunes, stories and musical virtuosity” – Wellington Dominion-Post
