Acclaimed acoustic group Tiller’s Folly released its eagerly anticipated new album Go The Road to much fanfare with recent appearances at the Folk Alliance Conference in Memphis and shows in Georgia and North Carolina in late February.

Go The Road, an all-acoustic album, continues the band’s musical move in a refreshing new direction and promises to introduce Tiller’s Folly to new audiences in the bluegrass, folk and Americana markets. The first single, Death and Taxes, features John Cowan and Josh Shilling along with Tiller’s Folly member Bruce Coughlan sharing lead singer roles and is currently serviced to radio worldwide via AirplayDirect.com.

The final list of guest artists featured on Go The Road reads like a who’s who of acoustic music: John Cowan (Newgrass Revival/Doobie Brothers/John Cowan Band); Sam Bush (Newgrass Revival/Sam Bush Band); Josh Shilling (Mountain Heart); Ronnie McCoury (Del McCoury Band/ The Travelin McCoury’s); Cia Cherryholmes (The Cherryholmes); Scottish Music Hall of Fame member Phil Cunningham (Phil & Ali); heralded singer-songwriter/producer Wendy Waldman; Scott Vestal (Sam Bush Band); Jeff Autry (John Cowan Band/The Travelin McCoury’s); and Randy Kohrs (Randy Kohrs Band/Jim Lauderdale/Dolly Parton); as well as Vancouver Island’s acclaimed award winning producer Joby Baker.

Tiller’s Folly is the Pacific Northwest’s critically acclaimed, internationally traveled ambassadors of song and at the forefront of a bold new movement in acoustic roots music.

For the past 16 years, through thousands of performances stretching from the Pacific Northwest to the British Isles, they band has spread its memorable blend of energy, history, musicality, romance and fun from small and large halls to theatres and festivals.

Featuring Maple Ridge resident Bruce Coughlan on lead vocals, as well as Nolan Murray  and Laurence Knight, Tiller’s award-winning productions continue to expand and refine a potent mix.

Hailed by critics, the band’s words and melodies are at once populist, minimally produced and poignant, while at the same time singularly powerful and sincere.

Fueled by an unfailing passion and enthusiasm for the music, Tiller’s Folly is continuingly experimenting with different phrasing, tones and textures while recording with some of the most exciting and innovative musicians and singers in the business today.

Tiller’s Folly  is back home on Saturday for a show at the Vancouver Celtic Festival at 12:30 p.m.
