They are available on the Southend at Freeland's BookBay, Moonraker in Langley, The Tartan Thistle in Bayview, and the Clinton CyberC@fe.The Tiller's Folly has been called a cross between Stan Rodgers and The Clancy Brothers. Mixing new and old styles, it is presently on a crusade to celebrate British Columbia's dramatic history through song, weaving the tales of Canada's West Coast into lively Celtic compositions.Joining the Tillers' Folly are two world-class Irish dancers performing a range of dance styles, from slip jigs to the rhythmic treble reels and hard-shoe thunder made popular by Riverdance and Lord of the Dance.
