|Stompin' Tom Connors Tribute|
Fraser Newcombe was born in Murphy’s Cove, on the Eastern Shore of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Coming from a large family of 9 children, he learned the value of family traditions. Neighbors and friends would gather for any occasion and here is where Fraser acquired his love of music. His father worked in lumber camps and at age 12, Fraser worked alongside him. He attained his appreciation of natural resources at a very early age. Later, Fraser went into the flooring business for close to 30 years, only to progress into his own creation… “Fraser’s Wide Plank Flooring, Inc.” Fraser’s love for the forestry, fisheries, and Canada’s other natural resources, is emanated in his music. His strong passion for the preservation of these gifts, which he possesses, has led to his song writing.
Fraser’s easy-going persona and comical nature, affords his work as interesting, entertaining, and amusing. Guaranteed to please and surprise you at the same time. Never having taken a guitar or voice lesson, Fraser’s inspirations comes from classic legends such as Box Car Willie, Stompin’ Tom, Johnny Cash, and Hank Snow, just to name a few. He blends mixture of these ‘Greats’ into his own style bringing you a familiar and unusual rendition of ageless music.
Fraser has opened packed shows for artists such as Tommy Cash and George Hamilton IV. Fraser has played in Nashville at the famed Nashville Palace on Mother’s Day 2010.
Fraser’s latest accomplishment was a song written about a fellow Nova Scotian, Mr. Hank Snow. The song titled, Hank Snow and the Battery Radio has had great success and climbed to #15 on the top 40 country single chart with Cash Box Magazine.
