TILLER'S FOLLY TO REPRESENT BRITISH COLUMBIA IN PEI THIS SUMMER

 

The 150th Anniversary of the historic 1864 Charlottetown Conference will be celebrated in Prince Edward Island this summer, to commemoration of the first meeting of the Fathers of Confederation. This is an important event for Prince Edward Islanders, and for all Canadians, because it marks the initial efforts, discussions, and vision that led to the Confederation of Canada three years later in 1867.

 

Located on the beautiful Charlottetown waterfront, Confederation Landing Park will play host to the spectacular PEI 2014 Celebrations,  where performing artists from across the country will take part in this truly Canadian celebration.

 

British Columbia-based Roots Music band Tiller's Folly have been invited to represent BC at the celebration. The group will be performing on Sunday evening, August 10th as part of a concert series that includes Natalie MacMaster, Barra MacNeils, Serena Ryder, Paul Brandt, Burton Cummings & Matthew Good.

 

This invitation mirrors a similar event, when in 2008, the group was invited to perform on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, on Canada Day to acknowledge BC's 150th Anniversary and the Simon Fraser bicentennial. (see video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qDrFcj2C5Lk)
