The Victoria launch of Tiller's Folly latest critically acclaimed album, "Go The Road", an evening of traditional roots music you won't want to miss!

Tiller’s Folly, are the Pacific Northwest's critically acclaimed, internationally traveled, virtuosic ambassadors of song. For the past sixteen years, through 1,000's of performances stretching from the mists of the Pacific Northwest to the British Isles, they have spread their memorable blend of energy, history, musicality, romance and just plain fun from small and large halls to theatres and festivals. Hailed by critics (“Tiller’s Folly is a national treasure”. – Peter North, Edmonton Journal), their words and melodies are at once populist, minimally produced and poignant while at the same time singularly powerful and sincere.

With eight studio CD's to the bands credit, Tiller's award winning productions continue to expand and refine their potent mix of acoustic & electric based, Celtic influenced Canadiana, Americana, Newgrass 'and beyond.'

In 2008, Tiller's Folly introduced a multimedia component to their show including both modern and archival film footage and photography, adding sharp, captivating visual images and film designed to provide a whole new depth of understanding and enjoyment to an already impressive stage show. As a result, this is a show that the audience will carry with them long after the final note has played.

Fueled by their unfailing passion and enthusiasm for the music, Tiller’s is continuingly experimenting with different phrasing, tones and textures while recording with some of the most exciting and innovative musicians and singers in the business today as they continue to evolve as artists. Names like the phenomenally talented front man of the iconic group NewGrass Revival, John Cowan to Bob Babbitt (most famous for his work as a member of Motown Records studio band, the Funk Brothers, from 1966–1972, as well as his tenure as part of MFSB for Philadelphia International Records) and the late legendary session keyboardist Larry Knechtel have moved Tiller’s music to a new level of mastery.

With their new self-penned songs, new musical studio partnerships and an inexhaustible collaborative spirit, Tiller’s Folly is poised to breakthrough to the next level in 2011 and beyond.

Tiller’s Folly is:

Bruce Coughlan (songwriter, lead vocals. Guitar, bodhran, flute, whistle)
Nolan Murray (fiddle, mandolin, mandocaster, banjo, viola, guitar)
Laurence Knight (producer, bass, vocals)

Opening for them will be Victoria's own Celtic ambassadors, Qristina and Quinn Bachand. With three Canadian Folk Music Award nominations, three Irish Music Award nominations including two Irish Music Award wins for Top Traditional Group and Top Duo, all since 2009, this young brother and sister are well on their way to becoming two of the most important musicians in the international Celtic music scene. They are nothing less than spectacular!
