STIRRING UP GHOSTS
It’s hard to imagine Canada prior to European contact. A vast, sparsely populated wilderness, Aboriginal communities scattered along its rugged coastline or clustered around lakes and along rivers. Equally hard to imagine is how, in a brief span of two centuries, the landscape, both physical and cultural has been so dramatically changed.
This change began with the fur trade, bringing explorers who first mapped this vast region, establishing trade with the First Nations people. The fur trade eventually led to the discovery of gold throughout the West. It was the following gold rush that prompted colonization, and with colonization came industry. It was industry that led to the Dominion of Canada.
Today, The True North represents a richly diverse and unique global society, which embraces many cultures and ideals. In the proverbial blink of an eye, cities have sprung up out of the wilderness.
Stirring up Ghosts contains songs of triumph and mystery, tales of intrigue and adventure and true life heroes & villains of the True North's flamboyant past.
The aim of this collection is to foster awareness of Canadian Heritage, Culture & History through the arts. The Tiller’s Folly have written & produced an unprecedented collection of historically based songs. Each song is a celebration of our history. Each song lends insight into life on the Northern Frontier.
