Celebrating their 25th Anniversary west coast Celtic roots band Tiller’s Folly share tales as old as time with a modernly lyrical twist. Inspired by true heroes and villains and backed by their patent mix of acoustic Celtic-influenced roots sound, they tell stirring stories of intrigue and adventure. Across nine Albums, Tiller’s Folly has united communities around the world with songs steeped in Scottish, Irish, American and Canadian roots music traditions. Their lively songs of war, highwaymen and moonshiners, their ballads of love turned sour and the lonely immigrant’s sorrow and the whimsical west coast sea shanties compel audiences to tap their feet, clap their hands and sing along with gusto. Their global fanbase has fallen in love with timeless hits like ‘Water at the Bar’, ‘Death & Taxes’, ‘Ghosts of Read Island’, ‘Spanish Banks’ and ‘Steamboatin’ Jamiesons’ to name just a few.
