In June, we spent some time in Sweden participating in a program called Ethno, an intensive at which young folk musicians from across the world meet to exchange music and ideas. The Bombadils represented Canada and lauded our times at the Fiddles on the Tobique festival in Nictau, New Brunswick by teaching the fiddle tune “Mouth of the Tobique,” in a workshop, which we then performed in concert with an orchestra comprised of all of the participants and teachers at Ethno (video below!). Our minds and bodies totally bewildered by the sun’s refusal to set on Midsummer Sweden, we stayed up late and learned tunes until we couldn’t keep our eyes open, made friends with amazing people from all over the world, danced an extreme variety of traditional dances, and learned a handful of Swedish craftmaking techniques. It was an incredible and eye opening experience for all of us.

Luke and Sarah said “I do” in a beautiful and spacious church in Verdun, Quebec on August 23rd, 2014. The reception boasted performances by host of the Bombadils’ partners in crime including Salty Dog and Sarah-Jane Scouten, piles of great food, and plenty of jamming with lots of wonderful people.
