The Bombadils “Losing Track Of Time” – hey come merry-dol….

Oldest and eldest and river woman’s daughter they may not be, but Sarah Frank and Luke Fraser were inspired by Tolkien’s Bombadil and Goldberry when choosing a name for their folk duo.  Their folk is also not in Tom’s vibrant call-and-response style (if you want to hear that, try here), it’s more in the singer-songwriter tradition with bluegrass and Celtic influences mixed in.  ‘Losing Track of Time‘ is taken from the Canadian duo’s fourth album ‘Dear Friend‘ which is released on June 4th, and features Ellen Gibling’s harpand the bass of Patrick Reid.

It’s a song that picks up the threads of friendships that happen unexpectedly – the person you’ve just met with whom you just connect instantly and find yourself trading innermost thoughts with, letting down your guard and having a human moment.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
