Maison La Source Bleue, 1575,  Rte 201, Ormstown, Qc. J0S1K0. This is a retirement home.

 Friday, Nov 28, 7:00 PM.

The Bombadils are a band of four, whose songs and tunes draw inspiration from Celtic, bluegrass, and old-time folk sources. Theirs is a decidedly contemporary sound, blending soaring melodic lines, tight rhythmic energy, virtuosity and strong musical conviction to produce a powerful, charismatic live performance.

The Bombadils have a great following in this area and are sure to give their usual 110%.

This intimate concert is by reservation only. Please reply by email or by Tel. at 450-829-3463. Cost will be $20.00 at the door. Refreshments will be supplied at intermission where you will have a chance to meet and visit with the Bombadils. http://thebombadils.com.

The residents of La Source Bleue will have complimentary attendance sponsored by Branches and Roots.

Our last concert with David Bradstreet was a huge success at The Residence Ormstown.

By sponsoring these concerts at retirement homes we are able to give a little back to our seniors who have supported us over the years.

 BRANCHES AND ROOTS Festival and Concert series is a registered not for profit association of friends.

The concert will take place in the Great room at the residence and there is a limited amount of seating therefore it will be on a first registered, first served basis.
