Released 2015

STIRRING UP GHOSTS Volume 1 & 2 is an expanded, 2 CD set featuring 24 historically-based songs by Tiller's Folly. Likely the largest collection of historically-based songs ever released by a single performing group or composed by a single writer!
NOTES
Tiller's Folly originally released a limited edition of our STIRRING UP GHOSTS CD collection (1000 units) in 2008 to commemorate British Columbia's 150th Anniversary and the Simon Fraser Bi-centennial. The original CD featured 12 historically-based songs. That collector's edition quickly sold out, many of the tracks have been out of circulation since then.

Ten classic great songs that you haven't yet heard. If you loved music by groups like The Band, Chris Isaak, The Eagles, CCR mixed with modern sounds like Matchbox 20 and a more acoustic Green Day you'll love this CD. This is great acoustic melodic pop.
