It isn’t a secret that Bombadil have mastered the art of quirky pop-folk. Throughout the span of their discography, their melodic roots shine through as their lyrics mature. Hailing from Durham, North Carolina, and boasting the same management as southeastern legends The Avett Brothers, Bombadil is currently working on their upcoming album to be released in 2015, the first single of which was recently released. They put a great deal of emphasis on connecting with the audience and creating ambience in the performance space.

Bombadil’s sound is best described as harmonious, and hearing them play in a place with such great acoustics as the Charleston Music Hall is an opportunity you can’t pass up.
