Celtic, Canadiana & beyond!

For over twenty-five years, Tiller’s Folly have been uniting the past with the present as modern-day storytellers of lore, singing the West’s pioneer history to life. From the outset, Tiller’s Folly aspired to create acoustic music that is thoughtful, progressive, yet timeless in nature. Music that is representative of their Pacific Coastal home. They set out to preserve a measure of the West’s colonial heritage in stories & songs. 

Drawing influence from Scottish, Irish and Maritime Music traditions, Tiller’s Folly have continued to expand and refine their potent blend of Pacific Canadiana, and ‘beyond.’

“As one of the tightest, and unflinchingly focused, folk bands in the nation, Tiller’s Folly continues to produce music that is both distinctly Canadian and firmly rooted in the Celtic tradition. Stirring Up Ghosts confirms that Tiller’s Folly is a national treasure”

— Peter North / Edmonton Journal

Tiller's Folly as.....

Way Cool

Tiller's Folly will be bringing their alter egos as part of the show this year!!  Come enjoy the "way cool" retro sounds and learn a whole new appreciation!

The Two Tracks


American Songwriter has this to say about The Two Tracks: "They avoid many of the cliches and gimmicks that have grown common in the Americana world while still championing a natural, Earth-grown sound. To hear an acoustic quartet reach a level of dynamic and thematic intensity like The Two Tracks do is an immeasurably rewarding experience. It’s pure musicianship, it’s pure excellence, it’s pure Americana."

Mississippi Marshall

Grayson Hopper at Ground Zero with Lucious Spiller - Shared Experiences Clarksdale - PXL_2

Grayson is Mississippi Marshall's grandson.  He learns from Marshall, just as Marshall learned from his father.  Together, they form "Mississippi Marshall Deluxe."

Mississippi Marshall is one of the best blues guitarists in the Delta.  A songwriter and storyteller, he's played here for over a half-century.
Regularly touring from the South to the Rockies and back again, Marshall is consistently booked for his reputation as an authentic, heartfelt performer with a repertoire of classic and original songs that'll "pin ya to your seat!" 

"Blues is a feeling, and when it’s good and emotional, it can give you chill bumps.

It's that feeling in your soul and on the surface of your skin. That’s the Blues you feel on ya.


That's why I invite folks to “Come Get Some On Ya!“
