With The Chardonnay Sisters...

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.
