STIRRING UP GHOSTS KICKSTARTER INITIATIVE

 

STIRRING UP GHOSTS Volume 1 & 2 is an expanded, 2 CD set featuring 24 historically-based songs, collected, written and recorded by Tiller's Folly in the span of the group's own 18 year history. Many songs of the expanded collection have never been available on CD before. This collection will also feature 2 never before released tracks.

 

 

We are inviting our fans, friends and colleagues to help Tiller's Folly promote a distinctly Northern perspective of our history, our legends, our heroes and villains.

 

 

Our goal is to raise $5000. necessary to complete mixing, mastering of tracks that have already been recorded, along with the cost of pressing of our first 1000 copies.

 

Please drop by KICKSTARTER and check it out. Contributions start at $1. and every bit helps!

SIXTY - JOHN COWAN

Legendary Soul/Bluegrass vocalist John Cowan (John Cowan Band, Doobie Brothers, Newgrass Revival) is about to release his latest CD entitled Sixty.

 

CD COVER - SIXTY BY JOHN COWANWorking with band mate and producer John McFee (Elvis Costello, Doobie Brothers), John Cowan has assembled an amazing list of guest artists including Leon Russell, Alison Krauss and Sam Bush (to name only a very few), on the way to creating what is shaping up to be a cross-genre musical celebration of his 35 year career.

 

The first single from the album is Things I Haven't Done, penned by Tiller's Folly songsmith Bruce Coughlan (from the CD A River So Wide). This newest version features a duet with John Cowan and legendary songwriter Rodney Crowell (She's Crazy for Leaving, Shame On the Moon, Leaving Louisiana in the Broad Daylight). Other notable players on a track include Jim Messina (Buffalo Springfield, Poco, Loggins and Messina) on guitar and Huey Lewis (Huey Lewis & The News) on harmonica.

TILLER'S FOLLY TO REPRESENT BRITISH COLUMBIA IN PEI THIS SUMMER

 

The 150th Anniversary of the historic 1864 Charlottetown Conference will be celebrated in Prince Edward Island this summer, to commemoration of the first meeting of the Fathers of Confederation. This is an important event for Prince Edward Islanders, and for all Canadians, because it marks the initial efforts, discussions, and vision that led to the Confederation of Canada three years later in 1867.

 

Located on the beautiful Charlottetown waterfront, Confederation Landing Park will play host to the spectacular PEI 2014 Celebrations,  where performing artists from across the country will take part in this truly Canadian celebration.

 

British Columbia-based Roots Music band Tiller's Folly have been invited to represent BC at the celebration. The group will be performing on Sunday evening, August 10th as part of a concert series that includes Natalie MacMaster, Barra MacNeils, Serena Ryder, Paul Brandt, Burton Cummings & Matthew Good.

 

This invitation mirrors a similar event, when in 2008, the group was invited to perform on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, on Canada Day to acknowledge BC's 150th Anniversary and the Simon Fraser bicentennial. (see video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qDrFcj2C5Lk)

NOTES TO SELF


Friend of the Folly, keyboardist Doug Johnson (who recorded the Blue Frog sessions with us) has just released a CD of original classical compositions.

Note To Self  features Doug's impressive skills as a pianist, and includes an ensemble of cello, viola, violin and flute.

The compositions are varied and interesting and reflect Doug's life experience, like the solo piece Sucrose. A dizzyingly spectacular performance inspired by his grandchildren jacked up on sugar (track 5).

Tiller's Folly would like to wish Doug Johnson all possible success with this amazing project.
