Luke and Sarah grew up listening to The Beatles and Beethoven on cassette tapes (often re-wound with a chewed up pen) and both trained classically at McGill University in Montreal, Que. They released their first album, “Fill Your Boots!” (2012) and in the years to follow went on tour throughout Canada, the U.S., Australia, New Zealand and Europe. In 2015 they released their second album, “Grassy Roads, Wandering Feet,” and performed at folk festivals across North America. They were artists in residence at The Banff Centre in 2014, as well as Canadian participants at Ethno Sweden (2014), a folk music exchange between 90 musicians from 15 countries.
Luke and Sarah will be joined during their Colebrook appearance by Nashville-based cellist Kaitlyn Raitz. GNWCA audience will remember cellist Kaitlyn Raitz when she appeared with the group Ozere, which the GNWCA brought to Colebrook in 2015.
