Concert: Tiller’s Folly
June 30 / 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
After two years off, we’re excited to be bringing back evenings filled with some exceptional classical, traditional, folk, roots, world music, and acoustic blues talents as we welcome performers in the heritage gardens near our 1877 waterwheel-powered flour mill. We’re only a half hour drive from Penticton, OK Falls, Oliver or Osoyoos–come visit one of the most charming concert venues in the South Okanagan and Similkameen!
Bruce Coughlan: vocals & acoustic guitar
Laurence Knight: bass & vocals
Nolan Murray: fiddle, mandolin & mandocaster
For over twenty 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.’
The toast of the Pacific Coast, Tiller’s Folly have carried their songs & stories across Canada, the United States & the British Isles, sharing their memorable blend of energy, history, musicality, virtuosity, romance and just plain fun!
