Folk Fest

Luke Mercer

Luke Mercer has been listening and dancing to music since he was old enough to crawl.

A familiar face at traditional music sessions at O’ Reilly’s Pub and Mallard Cottage, Luke has played at the Newfoundland & Labrador Folk Festival, Young Folk at the Hall, Eastport Accordion Festival and was the opening act for the sold-out High Kings show at Holy Heart Theatre in 2016. A student at Music Immersion in Conception Bay South, Luke has been playing and learning accordion from Aaron Collis for four years.

A Grade Three student at St. Matthew’s Elementary, Luke is always excited to join a jam session or play for a crowd at any time.
