Twenty years in the business..... They must be doing something right.

This year sees the ever popular Tiller’s Folly celebrating their 20th anniversary as a band
with a special concert and a DVD of the event to commemorate the occasion.

As one of the tightest and most focused folk bands in the nation, Tiller’s Folly continues to make music that is both distinctly Canadian and firmly rooted in the acoustic tradition. Based in the Pacific Northwest, Tiller's Folly are a critically acclaimed, internationally traveled power trio at the forefront of a bold new movement in roots music. For the past twenty years, through thousands of performances stretching from the Pacific North-west to The Carolinas and across to the British Isles and beyond - they have spread their memorable blend of energy, history, musicality, romance and just plain fun from small and large halls to theaters and festivals.

2017, our sesquicentennial year, saw the birth of a new project for Tiller’s Folly and some friends. The Great Canadian Songbook is a show headlining Ken Lavigne and Diyet as well as the talented lads of Tiller’s Folly in a show featuring some of Canada’s most cherished and identifiable music. The concert (and the album of the same name) takes you on a journey through the heritage of songs that are our national treasure.

Tiller's award winning productions continue to expand and refine
their potent mix of acoustic & electric based,
Celtic-influenced Canadiana, Americana, Newgrass 'and beyond.'

Don't miss these guys. Great fun in the great Okanagan outdoors....


Thank you from your Lantern Folk Roots Society.....
