THE EPHEMERAL STRING BAND
with THE BOMBADILS and NICK MAOINE
The Ephemeral Stringband draws from several branches of traditional American music including Oldtime Stringband music, Early country and bluegrass and Shape Note sacred hymns. They combine skillful instrumental playing with close harmony singing, creating a sound that grounded in the past, while creating new material to add to the living tradition of American music.https://mollyandmaggie.bandcamp.com
For over five years, rising folk-stars, The Bombadils have been enchanting audiences around the world with their unique fusion of traditional, world and progressive folk.
“The Bombadils have all the elements of a great band – a high level of musical proficiency, deep respect for the traditional roots of their material and an engaging repertoire which holds the attention of the listener from beginning to end.”
