One of the preeminent Canadian based folk/Celtic groups will be performing in Spirit Square on July 17 when Tillers Folly plays Summer Kicks.
The award winning group is at the forefront of a bold new movement in acoustic roots music. For the past 16 years, through 1,000s of performances stretching from the Pacific Northwest to the British Isles, they have spread their memorable blend of energy, history, musicality, romance and just plain fun from small and large halls to televison, radio, theatres and festivals.
With eight studio CDs to the band’s credit and fueled by enthusiasm for the music, Tillers is always experimenting with different phrasing, tones and textures while recording with some of the most exciting musicians in the business today as they continue to evolve as artists.
In 2012 the band completed their new project that marks a fresh, new direction for the band and unleashes the writing and acoustic performance prowess of this band.
The band received critical praise and world-wide recognition when in the summer of 2012 they earned the high honour of winning the 11th Annual Independent Music Awards Vox Pop Poll for their song “Death & Taxes” from their new album, “Go The Road.”
The Parson Jazz Cooperative will be playing a set during the intermission at the show.
