Tiller's Folly

Discipline: Music
Homebase: Surrey
Languages: English

For over 20 years, Tiller's Folly have been wowing audiences in Canada, The United States and The UK with their superb musicianship, ultra high energy performances, and riotous songs about The Pacific North West's own colourful past. The band's exceptional musicianship, versatility and passion have won them the loyalty of many fans who appreciate the band's clever amalgam of Celtic, bluegrass, and folk music laced with a touch of country and rock. Saturated in deep Pacific brine, this is roots music at its best.


Tiller's Folly was outstanding! What fabulous musicians! The entire audience was entranced by the music. Georges Vanier Elementary, Surrey
Tiller's Folly is a national treasure. Peter North, Edmonton Journal
