Tiller’s Folly

A long time festival favorite, we’re delighted that Tiller’s Folly is returning this year.  Thecritically acclaimed, internationally travelled acoustic power trio, planted at the forefront of a bold new movement in progressive roots music. A highly regarded Canadian Celtic group-turned-historians, this award-winning ensemble has shifted to what might be more aptly termed Acoustic Roots Music.  Principle songwriter and vocalist Bruce Coughlan is a true collector of songs and a multi-faceted talent — fated to be recognized as one of the great Canadian songwriters in the league of Gordon Lightfoot and Stan Rogers.  Fiddler/multi-instrumentalist Nolan Murray is an Oregon State Fiddle Champion, top ten Grand Master Champion and top ten US National Fiddle Champion.  The bassist Laurence Knight is an expressive musician who adds his soulful, rhythmic signature to the Tiller’s Folly blend.  “Tiller’s Folly is a national treasure”.
