Enjoyed you show at Westacres farm in Maple Ridge. Tried to play Auld Lang Syne on your webpage ,but it would not work. Keep up the good work.
Hi I’m. From Kelowna and have seen you perform there. Since then I have been an avid fan. ‘Shine’ struck such a chord ( no pun intended) that night. I knew I had to learn it. I sang it at an after Grad party for my son and his friends.. One of them came over after and gave me a hug and a ‘ thanks for that’ A nephew will graduate next year with similar challenges that you spoke of that night. I will sing it for him. Thank you for the song and your music!
I am a long time fan and still appreciate your Celtic- Canadian sound. I’m looking forward to your performance at Golden Spike days. I’m an Irish/Can Can dancer so I’ll be at the right place at the right time. Regards, Catherine
I was recently visiting friends in Victoria, while there I picked up a copy of “Stirring up ghosts” at the Museum of B.C. The CD is brilliant, the songs, music and lyrics are very inspiring and entertaining. A first class act. Well done. Peter Wilson Melbourne, Australia
I am a member of the Maple Ridge Community Heritage Commission and Bruce Coughlan entertained at our Heritage Awards evening. Bruce sang Chatham Reach and I have been in the area but didn't know it was called that. I bought a C D and I googled Chatham Reach and this web site showed up. I have not had a chance to listen to all the music but everything I have listened to so far has been great.
Have your CD, love it, have see you play on 10th Avenue by RBC, and my favourite song is Spanish Banks, as I grew up there and live there still -- the most beautiful and natural area with a wealth of history and life stories. One of the best characteristics is that anybody can easily access the beaches because of free parking, but this is about to change as of April 1, 2018, with the Parks Board putting in metered parking. For those who oppose this cash grab and want to keep these public beaches free to all, please sign the petition: https://www.change.org/p/vancouver-park-board-no-parking-meters-on-spanish-banks
Great music as my wife and I travel to Vancouver Island when possible.Your song Bitter End has a connection to me as my Grandfather Gillis's brother William and his nephew we're the ones in your song.I heard stories about the event but my Grandpa never talked about it.Sincerely Doug in So. Calif.
Four of us enjoyed your concert in Sidney last night, an evening that could have gone on for many more hours and to be remembered with a smile and a tune. A very happy occasion. Many of us in the audience would like to have a CD of this performance, will there be one issued soon?
Thanks for a great performance. You sounded wonderful!
Saw you in Langley last night. Excellent show.
Super Great Canadian Songbook concert last night & it was good to meet you! Hope you get lots of bookings. The name of the "Canada Is" writer & singer is Michael Mitchell who lives in Vancouver. Hope we see you again. Nerissa (Gail's friend).
Hey, Caught your fabulous set at Robson Square on Saturday evening and can't believe i don't go out to hear you more often. Your songs were great and i especially liked the one you said you wrote when a member of the Beatles. Can't remember the title. Would be great if you could help me out. Will now keep an eye peeled more closely for when you play in Vancouver. Thanks.
fantastic night at the Celtic Festival
We became fans many years ago when Tillers Folly played in Moscow, Idaho. We keep hoping you will return to the inland northwest. I have only seen one engagement in this area this past summer, and we were unable to attend. Any plans to return in the near future? Regards, R.Farrell
Loved your performance last evening at the NAMIC convention. I heard a song that I loved and cannot find it on your website. Could you by chance provide a playlist of sorts so that perhaps I could identify the song? The song was slow and very melodic. Thank you!
First became aware of your group in Regina Sask on the week end of june 3 to 5 at the Scottish pavillion what a talented trio. Thoroughly enjoyed your music. Your group has a great gift. Thank you. Very Much !
Hi, My Vancouver Orpheus Choir is singing your song John Tod in the spring as arranged by Ron Smail. I will promote your concert coming up at the Blue Frog Studio to the choir and perhaps we can get a good group to attend! Thanks for the great music. One of your biggest fans! John
Love your music. I'm on the Port Ludlow Performing Arts council here in Washington and we so look forward to your next performance here!
Love your music. Let me know when you are in vicinity of Whidbey Island, like Anacortes, Pt. Townsend, or The Muse in Conway. Thanks! Barbara
Great concert on Saturday Night in Colwood! The song were amazing. It is a pleasure to hear our Canadian history in song! An A for Canadian content yeah.
Love your music! My Sister-in-law was at your concert in Langford, and introduced me to you! Keep the music coming!!
Looking forward to tomorrow night concert. Listening to the CD now!
Enjoyed your performance at the Midway Museum last weekend.. hope to see you in Boundary Country or the Okanagan again soon.. Lovely music!!
I use your songs in teaching my grade 4/5 classes about BC history. They love them! I'm looking forward to seeing you in Victoria Oct. 3.
Enjoyed your concert in Midway tonight! Blessings on you!
Hi Bruce, I'm glad to have come across your Rock Creek fundraiser on our local Naramata community website. I haven't been following the band closely since your impressive "big band" performance in Summerland Centre Stage Theatre many yrs ago. Now I realize (again) what I've been missing. You played for (one of) my wedding(s) at UBC back in 1991, on a fine Sunday afternoon at Cecil Green mansion. Lest anyone describe the trio as an "overnight sensation"!
We enjoyed your performance at the Harmony Festival. One of your songs reminded me of a wonderful trip with my father on the good old BCE interurban line.
Your music takes us far where our dreams are awaken, thanks for making that possible.
A couple of years ago I spent a holiday on Orkney and came across the amazing story of John Rae. Recently I heard, for the first time, the Ballard of John Rae. That then led me to another amazing discovery - Tiller's Folley - (shame on me) I had never come across this band and their great music and living in the UK is certainly no excuse for this omission
Had a great night with The Whisky Minstrels at the Tin Hut, Gartly. What a delightful mixture of music, songs and tales from Bruce, with wizardry on the strings from Nolan. Roll on next time!!
Enjoyed listening to a preview of your music. Looking forward to seeing you perform in Campbell River next Thursday
It was an honour to have met you at the Osoyoos Canada day event, and to host you in my motorhome/recording rig. Be Blessed! (Empowered to Prosper)
Loved your show at the border Festival & purchased Stirring Up Ghosts CD & will play it at our Canada Day dinner. Saw you once before at Blue Frog Studio & found out you were playing at the festival so we decided to go! Enjoy Scotland, we will be there next yr. Electric Railway should be played at Cloverdales Historic Train Station.
Thank you ever so much for what you do. I am a BC Social Studies teacher and use your work every year as a source of inspiration to investigate, report, and express points of view on BC's economy, history, society, and current affairs. The music is beautiful and the lyrics accurate, defensible, and topical. Thank you and I hope to see you perform again or publish again soon.
What a fascinating story that is about the rum running murder, Bruce! Never heard of it before! All the best with your Western Canada Music Award nomination! Hope you guys are all well! Please say Hi to Laurence Knight for me! If he still lives in White Rock I might drop in and say hi as I'll be up that way in June.
I really enjoyed talking to you fellas at the end of the show tonight.Great show guys. I hope to see you the next time you come to Powell River-and this Saturday I will be playing a few tunes from the cd's I got.Thank you for a lovely evening of great music.
This album is absolutely fantastic !! Great musicianship. Very good songwriting. Excellent Production and engineering. Liner notes are beautiful and interesting artwork! Very very good ! Congratulations ! I will be telling people about this ! Steve DeCoste New Westminster BC
I just listened to "I Was Here" on the eighth anniversary of my soulmate's passing. Angels must have winged it to me, every word, every note was perfectly beautiful. I'm still weeping, for the poignancy of it, for the gift you just gave me. Thank you, I'll see you in Powell River later this month. I have a newsblog powellriverdailynews.com and I'm helping to spread word that Tiller's Folly is on their way. Thanks to you all, Drewen.
I attended the show at The Blue Frog Studio. great time
Enjoyed your concert at Blue Frog last night. What a great concert! Now listening to the CD.
We met about16 yrs ago in Haida Gwaii. You very graciousely accepted an invitation to perform for our community through the Arts council which I was a part of. I continue to listen to the cds I bought at the time( Ghost of the Mighty Fraser and the View from Here). I'm glad you're still making music, you are a Canadian treasure. Diane and Al Ogilvy, now of Victoria .
"Your fan club is here!" Lois & I will chase you all over the Northwest! Love you guys!
So much enjoyed your performance last evening at the Port Theatre in Nanaimo. Could have sat and listened to you all evening.
GAWD! You guys are the BOMB! Love yer guts> 23 Camels still my fav!!
I'm a fan! Love you.....you are all so talented!
Looking forward to your performance in the Port Theatre, Nanaimo March 7/15
You visited our school in Fruitvale several years back. I got your CD River So Wide and have played your song Take Pride every year for my students since then. It really means a lot to me - the song conveys a very important message that my students need to hear. Thank you so much for your music!
Just received my package
Heard you perform last night in Ellensburg, where we live. It was an outstanding performance in an intimate setting. We were fortunate to have heard about it. Very unfortunate others had not. Their loss! The music was inspiring, rousing and extremely entertaining. Great stories and great music. And yes, we need to maintain and promote the enjoyment of live music. Thanks for a memorable evening. We will find you again sometime. Can't wait.
Hi Guys......Just wanted to thank you for a wonderful kickstart to 2015. We were at Murray's on New Year's Eve (I'm his cousin) and listening to you made me realize how much I've missed the magic of live music close up and personal. Great medicine for the soul. Appreciated your sound and talent so much, being able to share the experience with my family was such a gift. Hope to listen to you at another event soon. Sandy
Saw you at Ocean Shores this past weekend and loved all we heard from you. We are also locals -- Ladnerites -- so hope you play locally sometime in the near future.
Enjoyed all of your show this past weekend in Ocean Shores ... hope to see you come our way one of these days.
Saw you last year in Ocean Shores- loved yoyr sound! Do you ever go to the Phoenix area?
It was very nice chatting with you at the Calgary airport. I'll see if i can get away to the Galway Bay Irish Festival. See you down the road. Ken
We listen to your music all day at work and I came here looking for the lyrics. It's really neat how so many songs have to do with the history of our area and how it plays a part in today's culture. Thank you for it! Ps - where are the lyrics? :)
Looking forward to seeing you at Filberg Festival in beautiful Comox!
Hi Guys! I hear you may well be playing the La Grande Celtic Fest this year. I hope so! I will be playing there for the first time, love your music and looking forward to meeting you. See you in August!
I'm listening to your new album "Go the Road" and it is possibly more magical than your past works, which is saying you've reached the Mountain top again! What a beautiful treasure. Becky and I listen to the genius of your music and lyrics and are transported to a very special place. Your music makes a difference in our lives! Keep it coming, and hope to see you again soon!
FUNDING!!!!!!! YAY!!!! Can't wait for the new album guys! Much love.
Wonderful show last night in Josephburg AB.(Jan.15,2012)
Thanks for sharing with us in Slave Lake. I enjoyed your concert very much and will certainly go out of my way to take in another concert within traveling distance of where I am. It was obvious from the response of the audience you were enjoyewd by all.
Would your band be willing to share the lyrics to the song "Drinking at the Bar"? Go raith maith agat, L.
Made it to Kentucky/Tenn (Clarksville, TN) and waiting patiently for you guys to get to your Nashville concert. If I am right it should be close to a birthday, so I am rounding up a crowd. See you guys there and be sure to bring some CDs, a couple of ours went missing........I guess you can say you have a growing audience!
Just listened to Auld Lang Syne again - beautiful! Looking forward to the new CD, I know all the others by heart. Wishing you and your families all the best and every success for 2012. Love your music.
Happy Holidays to all. Hope to see you guys on Jan 6th.
You guys are great! Hope you make it back to vanderhoof again soon! Have you though about booking yourselves at Books and Company in prince george? They have a great intimate venue upstairs. Merry Christmas Jeff
Saw thew show Friday Nov 25th at UVic. Wonderful!! thank you!hhc5gf
Hi Lawrance I met you and the cuys at Steamworks Pub in Vancouver I liked your music and you guys gave me a signed CD,I would like to Buy some other CDs you have available Please email at above email address Thank you Edward Harper
I enjoyed your little private concert at Beccy and Alan's house in La Grande!! Great MUSIC!!
Really enjoyed your special performance at Alan and Becky's. I'll always remember Laurence laying downa a driving bass in his socks, Bruce's heartfelt song to his children's children and "almost" not eating his chips in Inverness, and Nolan turning a fiddle bow into a magic wand. Thanks you all for sharing your special gifts with us!
Anxious to hear the group, when you visit Alberta.
Wishing you guys all the best !!
Hi We met Bruce and Nolan doing a keep your hand in gig at the Best Western Sands Hotel in downtown Vancouver whilst visiting from the UK. Superb nights entertainment and we even bought the CD. Best wishes from the UK
We found you at the IBMAs this week. How wonderful you are!!
As years pass by,The Tiller's Folly has been a remarkable, pleasant and fine Celtic Band to listen and dance.
Loved your (multiple) sets at The Canmore Highland Games! Hope to catch you again down the rod. Whisky and music for all!!
Just listening to "A Fine Kettle of Fish" today and still lovin' it! Hope all is well with you guys and I hope to catch up with you again sometime. www.paulsiebert.net
Please write the Tillers folly song book with chords... I want to play "Drinking water from the Bar".... Rock on! You guys are Led Zeppelin of Celtic/Irish music!
Very good website, Bruce's songs are an inspiration to all musicians.
Loved your show at Greenpoint Theatre last night...hope the rest of your tour is great fun. You are all such wonderful musicians on your own, but together, what a powerhouse. Thank you for the music! I have been trying to find lyrics online somewhere...any suggestions? My elderly friend couldn't hear everything and she would love to have them in hand.
Hey Lawrence! Wondering if you guys are coming to Kamloops in August for music in the park. I have family here the August 5th and 6th for my parents anniversary and thought if you were up around those dates we could line you guys up?! I know you guys mentioned you will be forgoing speyfest until next year...I would hate to wait until then to see you guys! Auntie Bev will be here so I am hoping the timing works. Let me know if you have any plans to come. Chat soon, Amanda
I listened to Nolan Murray CD "Heavy Wood" on my way home from Canada Day & it's an awesome CD. Love it. Totally different from "Off the Beaten Path"
Hi! I just took a look at how many CDs you have now and it seams that i have missed a few. I will fix that soon.. I have been a fan since your first album and have the first few signed by you . I will catch up on the disks and hopefully get them signed too Always your fan Doris
Saw you at the Juan de Fuca Festival in Port Angeles. You were my favorite group !!
Had the pleasure of seeing you at the last concert at the old fire hall in Rossland, B.C. about a year and a half ago. You rocked the house out way past closing and we danced the night away! Laurence was kind enough to talk with us a couple of times and we really appreciated that a lot. I have been a singer in our local musical theatre company for about 20 years, used to be a soprano but age has made me an alto/tenor now and after damage to my voice I am starting to sing again in a local coffee house this fall. Just wondering if it would be ok to sing a couple of your songs? This is an all volunteer, unpaid venue. I don't know the rules for these things. Thanks for one of the best nights ever!
I've been a fan for many years. Living in the Kootenays, my exposure to diverse genres of music was limited. I just relocated to Vancouver Island. I am in Paradise, in so many ways. I'm sad to have missed the Chemainus performance. Just a few weeks too late. Be back soon? Hope so. I'm excited to know that I will have the chance to see a live show sometime soon.
Our household saw you at ye olde Errington Hall on April 17th. We loved your energy, music and lyrics and became "instant" fans!
we're just home from Errington where we were impressed by the talent of these 3 musicians: toe-tapping fun and lively entertainment. Thank you gentlemen. Watching Nolan's fingers fly over the mandolin and create amazing delights for the ears. wow
Our extended family was skiing up in Whistler, BC over the week of April 4th, 2011 and happened into catching Bruce at the Irish Pub there. He delighted out family and had them singing and dancing around the stage. He won our hearts, embarassed my mother in law with the hotel request and was simply delightful. It really made the evening memorable for our family. We're from Spokane, WA down in the states, but we'll hope to catch up with him again some day. Thanks again for the great music and entertainment! - Steve
I have been reading the history of the B.C. provincial police and they mentioned "McGowan's War" it reminded me of Judge Sunner of Bridge River because the judge found everyone guilty - he felt that was the only way he could maintain the support of the provincial police force. One of his decisions - against the miners in the first strike of miners in the province led to a very unique outcome -it revealed how to get Judge Sunner's decisions either reversed or penalty reduced - and he rarely bothered the ladies of the evening or the gamblers -Those were the days my friends we thought they'd never end.
love your site.xx
Saw you perform Saturday afternoon at Crystal Mountain Ski Resort. Great show! Loving the CD!
So enjoy all your music. Nolan, you done good!!! Hope to hear you in person sometime soon. Cousin Kathryn
What a fabulous evening that was in White Rock on January 22nd! You guys just get better and better! I really like Nolan's new CD, too. Hope you will be playing around here again soon. I need my regular "Tiller's Folly live" fix, and clearly so do a lot of other people. All the best for 2011.
Thank you so much for the CD, it's brilliant. Would you condsider playing at Porter's Bistro Coffee & Tea House in Murreyville, Langley? I would love to have you there. Lawrence, when you are back, please let me know if you have an openings. It was so nice meeting you both, please call me when you're back. Sincerely, Sharon 604 790-2927
Ever coming back to Cgy?

Miss you guys,
Hey guys! Starting to miss you guys around here... when are you coming back to Merritt/Kamloops area? :)
Hey guys, my names Cory Peterson. i grew up in Ione Oregon and i am Vic lovgrens great grandson. my mom and dad told me about Nolan and his family and about your band. i am going to school at eastern oregon university and have been working on my own music for the last few years and have got pretty good. my family told me i should try to get ahold of Nolan and see if you were in the area agian we could get together and i could show you some of my stuff! so it would be pretty great if you guys could get back to me. Take Care, Cory R. Peterson
Your music was stunning, as always. Thanks for yet another great show in La Grande!
love your music
I am so looking forward to the release of your recording with Valdy!!! He was one of my favorite musicians when I was in high school in upstate New York, but stations in other parts of the country didn't play him and I lost track. Your voices have a nice contrast but blend well. Maybe there will be more collaborations forthcoming?!?
Have tickets for La Grande @ EOU, can't wait!
thanks for your performance Monday night. I bought two of your CDs as a result
Bruce, Nolan, Lawrence: Thanks for a fabulous musical evening tonight at the MacPherson Theater in Victoria, to support of the Nature Conservancy of Canada. You guys are brilliant and your songs of this land were perfect. Great sounds with Valdy and Hank Cramer too !
Loved the photos of your latest Scotland trip! I hope you had a great turnout for the concert in Victoria with Valdy and Hank. I was in Victoria the previous weekend - guess my timing was a little off. :)
I cannot wait to se you guys perform in La grande on Oct 7th
While doing my 3 mile walk this afternoon I was listening to River City Folk and had my first introduction to Tiller's Folly. All I can say is WOW!, and as soon as I got home I ordered 2 CDs. I'm looking forward to listening for years to come.
Just starting to learn more about ya all
loved your tunes man keep it up
Les and Eloise Stolsig just delivered a 5 gallon bucket of fresh green beans and I am making them into "Tiller's Thrillers" tonight. We are all sure looking forward to seeing you guys in October!
i met you at speyfest i was staying at jim & janets in fochabers , a great weekend enjoyed meeting you and loved your music very much , hope to meet you in the future Alan
Hi Guys Hope you had a good trip home. Rick
I am missing your new cds as I only have 5(Buchan Bluegrass,Ghost of the Mighty Fraser River,A Ripple In Time,The View from Here & dvd/cd set. I would really like to get caught up with missing cd. Please let me know where I can get your other cds. I never get tired of your music
We all really enjoyed your performances at Speyfest. Thank you. We have written to the organisers of Celtic Connections recommending they sign you up for this event in January 2011. Hope to see you there. Kind regards The Keenan Family, Largs.
Amazing set at Speyfest, I've emailed Laurence some pics!
Hey Nolan, This is Louella - used to live in La Grande and had Carefree Travel agency - several years ago. George and I are living in Longview, WA now - and love it here. Hope to see you at one of your performances soon. We just moved back to the northwest from Pennsylvania and sure have missed your music. I have your CDs - but miss the live performances. Take care, George and Louella
Hi Guys,was great to see you all again last night. You were amazing,your like a good bottle of wine you get better and better with time. Sorry im not going to get to see you play at the Spey fest concert this year after listening last night im green with envy that circumstances make it very difficult for me to go to Spey fest this year. Please keep in touch and enjoy the rest of your time in Scotland. Lots of love and hugs to you all. Cheers Jo xx
I am the producer and voice of KSVL, 92.3 radio in Smith and Yerington, NV. I live in Washington but broadcast in Nevada. Can you come to Washington? I hear your going to Yerington, NV. What a shame I won't see you. I must get one of your CD's. Slan, Patricia
some time ago, I bought a copy of your 'ghosts of the Fraser' CD Didn't know you'd recorded anything else. One of the things that I like about your album is it's meaningful nature....it's not all about love and relationships. Not that I hate love songs, but there's more to the world. It's significant that the Irish culture was saved by the musical recounting of irish history and stories....and we may soon come to appreciate the same here
Hey Nolan and Larry, heard you ran into a mutual friend, Kile Jackson. Good to hear you are both still playing. I'm still going at it as well. stay in touch and Eney and I will come to your next show near Seattle. take care, Jim Wrinkle
Hi Guys have just finished listening to the Robbie McBeath sample it sounds get can't wait to hear it and see you at Speyfest not long now hope to catch up when we see you Till then Clair
Hi guys, just had a very enjoyable dinner with the kids home from college eating fresh food from the garden, good wine and "A Ripple in Time" playing. One of those great moments for a parent to see your kids grow into wonderful adults and to be able to spend 'old fashioned time' with them. We thought of you and wished you could join us. Hope the homeland is treating you well, wish we could be there for one of your concerts. Take care, John
Great show at Ft Lewis on the 4th. I hope you made it off the post okay. I know some of the 56th Army band heard the music and were impressed. You all enjoy the summer!
Inherited your CD "Buchan Bluegrass" recently. Love the music and stories! My mom was Scottish and German. I would love to hear you "live". I live in the Willamette Valley in Oregon. I see by your calendar that La Grande is the closest you come this fall. God bless you all!
hi guys that is me on line now. looking forward to your visit
Hii guys try and look in if you are near blairgowrie sorry we couldnt arrange a gig vic and eva
Guys...Thanks for the great show on Saturday in Victoria and for the autographed CD
Great new song from an Army guy, and by the way hope all is going well for the 4th of July. We are reserving a couple rooms at the Raineer Inn to have a relaxing stay at Ft Lewis. Contact Elaine and Doug if you need some inside info about Ft Lewis, they will point you to me.
Hiya sweeties! SO glad you are coming back to Pender harbour...and we have your role model, Archie. playing this yea, too! WOOHOO! it's going to be a great season!
Hi Nolan, It was a great pleasure meeting you at Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue. I thoroughly enjoyed the music as I bartended. Kindest regards, John
Loved Robbie McBeath. Video was very touching. It'll sell a lot of kleenex, and not just to Cam and I. Can this be done at Ft Lewis? Just a thought. Thanks again
Met you at the closing of the firehall concert April 10 this year . Such a great concert and thanks so much for staying so long. Ended up on the dance floor in a long sweater to cover up the wine that saturated my clothes after my rather inebriated gal pal marinated me! Bought the River So Wide and Minstrel in Moray and haven't had them out of my car since. Thanks so much for a great concert and heres hoping the Performance series here has you back again!!
Just been introduced to you, wish it had been sooner :-)
www.youtube.com/user/KootenayWest has BC tour videos
can't say enough about the music that these guys present. And to think, a group of their quality happens to stop by and share their talent with our little area here in Port Angeles. We are fortunate indeed. Thank you so much and come back soon.
Loved your music in Heppner. Hoping to see again at Tulalip
Your song Heel and Toe/Muddy Frogwater is absolutely incredible. I hope one day to see all of you play live. I LOVE your CD A Ripple in Time.
Am listening to BCE right now. Will never get tired of it. When are you going to get around to booking something in Bradner?
absolutely love the cD i was given in Fort St. John. a truly international sound. I will eagerly await your next effort. It was a pleasure to meet Nolan and Laurence on their trip to fort St. John and hopefully our paths will cross again. take Care, Craig Brooks DEERE JOHN
look forward to meeting you someday thru Robert Hood
Hey, guys! Hear you're going back to Speyfest. Wish we could be there! Wee Claire has never forgotten the song dedication at Clare and Craig's wedding ceilidh!
GREAT MUSIC!!!!!!!!! Thanks.........
These alternative lyrics salute a once proud motorcycle.......I'm here by your side, I can't get no spark\ to go for a final short ride/ Its hard to imagine an engine so strong/ in silence, the sucker just died.........In each line on your tank theres a story/ the lap times, the races you've seen/ here at last at the end of the journey/rust in peace, forever, machine.........How bravely you battled, you raced with the cars/ you caused those damn cagers to pay/ now a voice at the scrappers assessing your parts/ all the more I wish you could stay.......Still I know that your spirit is rising/ on the fumes of your last gasoline/ to the bars where you become legend/ rust in peace, forever, machine........
Just to let The Tiller's Folly fans know...you can listen live all over the world to 'The Independent Music Show' playing 'Water At The Bar'. Tune in Saturday 17th April and every Saturday 2pm till3pm for the very best in Independent Music. I'm sure I will be playing more of The Tiller's Folly in future shows. Your music is as they say in Ireland...MIGHTY!!!! Tom.
slumach.ca & slumach.blogspot.com I am delighted to have discovered at last your song "chatham reach." I'd like so much to put the lyrics on my Slumach Web site and blog and to post a sample of your song and a link to where the CD can be purchased. If that;s okay, could you send me the lyrics and a file for the sample please? Fred
Great show in Elgin last night! Thank you! I was wondering what is the title and CD of the song with the lyric "and the things I haven't done"? It also spoke of dreams..... A powerful song that spoke to me! Again, thanks for coming out this way! See you again.....Carlos
Just got home from your performance at the Elgin Opera House. You were great, as usual. First saw you about 12 years ago when you performed at the Stella Mayfield auditorium and have been a fan ever since.
I'm a Boise State student and saw notice of your concert here tomorrow so visited your website and can't wait to see you. Thanks for coming through Boise an providing an affordable opportunity to hear GREAT music!
Again, THANKS so much for stopping by Irishtown last Thursday. It was an awesome time. Come back again soon.
I so enjoyed your performanc at Irishtown Pub last night. I am enjoying your cds this morn. Your music is beautiful and joyful. Even the touching, "Tranquility". I'm so happy to have found and have an opportunity to enjoy your craft. Thanks for paying attention and taking pride. ;-)
GC PRODUCTIONS , you were awesome tonight in Seaside, loved the Maggie May song...keep in touch perhaps we can work together with Craig's blessing of course! www.gcproductions.biz GINGER
Moved to Billings Montana from Enterprise, OR, sure do miss watching you in person! Mike and Julie Henning
see you guys in Port Angeles Friday.(friends of Elaine)
Looking forward to seeing you again at Irish Town.
Well are always enjoying your music. Our son Ben is in school UNB and he believes it reminds him of home out west. Surprising with all that east coast music he hears too. My wifes' family is always reminded of their G.G.G.father in your song of the last R.Engineer. Keep up your fine work and we will be listening.
Looking forward to seeing you on March 14th in Boise. Love and Miss You All!
Great Concert at the Ozone in Richmons fellows! We really enjoyed it.

I teach in Vanderhoof BC. I have watched you folk perform four times, met you all... Your music is inpsiring, moving, and thought provoking. Thank you!
You guys are great! Heard you on the Knowledge Network a few years ago, but were unable to find you online. Now we will be buying one of your CD's asap.
I traveled from Enterprise, Oregon to Southern B.C. to check out the placenames in the McCullas Wonder song, and lo and behold not only is it all true, its a flippin bike trail, and I'm a flippin bike rider!. I'm goin' back next summer , thanks for the heads up, guys!!

Its a great shower song.......Carlos

Hi Guys, I had a great time at your show. You guys rock and I love your music. Bruce, the new album is AWESOME!. Listening to it a lot and I never listen to music. The arrangements are perfect. Have they played it on the Thistle and Shamrock? they should. Great job.
Want to let you know we thoroughly enjoyed you last night at the Irish Town Pub in Vancouver. We are looking forward to seeing you again soon
Great show in Vancouver USA last night at the Irishtown Pub. Fun to hear and see you all again! Am totally enjoying your new STIRRING UP GHOSTS cd. Happy trails. Judy & Doug Smith
Hey gang, Terry from Maggie's Fury chiming in! Our gang had a great time at Galway Bay's Irish Festival. Man you guy are a class act!! I have been enjoying both River so Wide and Bruce's Minstrel in Moray. You guys most likely will be my Most Play on my ipod before the months out I'm sure! Will meet again because Dawn and I will be checking your website to keep tabs on what you'll are up to. Once again thanks for the fine music!
Velma say: Jinkies! You fellas rock!
you gentlemen rock my world in port angeles! nothing better than good friends, a table to talk over and your fabulous music. thanks for the great time!
Great set of shows this weekend. Great reviews from our friends that joined us and thier friends they invited. They were mostly suprised at the versitility of genre from celtic to rock to bluegrass and country. Every song encountered a new suprise for them. May your travels find you well.
from that little bar on the water in Port Angeles WA. Thanks always for the music but especially the kindness you extended to our family, especially "Grandma Helen" She loved every minute. See you again soon. Dale and Kathy
thank you for the music. i like your music!
It was another evening of beautiful, musical conversations taking place on stage...you have a collective charisma that continues to set the stage aglow. Thank you for brining such a great performance to the community!
Just enjoyed the show at EOU! I've got to admit it was my first exposure to the Tiller's Folly, but I'm hooked!
I saw the line up for the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in San Francisco this weekend and thought - Tiller's Folly ought to be here! I'm not sure who you need to contact - but you've got a year to find out! hope to see you in the bay area sometime soon! I love your music!
I loved the show this last weekend, I can't wait until you come back on October 23rd and neither can my friends I invited that night. They loved the show.
You guys are Awsome keep up the great music
Great weekend, our pleasure to host you guys again! Have a great road trip to Eastern Oregon. Get over that nasty cold soon Bruce. Cam and Carla
The Stan Rogers Tribute was a fantastic experience! The sound was great and the music selected couldn't have been better. Between you guys, Valdy and Hank Cramer you sang almost all of my favorite SR songs. When Colleen Eccleston join you all on stage it was unbelievable. Doug really missed out and I probably won't let him forget it! Thank you so much for including us. Looking forward to seeing you this weekend in Port Angeles.
Just had the pleasure of seeing you live again tonight at the Stan Rogers Tribute in Victoria. We saw you for the first time live at a fund raiser in Sidney a couple years ago where we bought and enjoyed the DVD & CD A Fine Kettle of Fish We became aware of this concert yesterday and seeing the musical subject and Tiller's Folley would be featured I knew we were in for a treat. I tried to spread the by sending an e-mail out to our local jam group distribution list but it may have too little too late . I purchased you latest CD A River So Wide and I am sure we will enjoy it as well. Look forward to our next opportunity to see you live The Watsons Sidney BC
Looking forward to coming over to Victoria to see you. Doug and Elaine want us to join them--we are waiting for passports to arrive first before we travel over there.
Hope to see you all again, soon.
Been listening to your music and i am trying to find The Last Engineer.
You guys are great!
Can't wait to get my copy of Bruce's new CD - I've listened to the samples, and they are awesome, especially Apron Strings - another beautiful song from a very talented writer. We're still buzzing from having you play at our party. What a fantastic evening. Hope to see you again soon. Hugs and best wishes to all of you.
I would like to hear from you about whether or not you got the job in Ontario at Four Rivers. Looking forward to seeing you on October 3rd. Love you all!
Nolan, the boys and I enjoyed meeting and talking with you at Sears Optical today. Very cool to see your pictures and listen to your band. Make sure you say Hi to Lisa & Brian at the trailer park. Take care, Carrie
My husband and I went to a concert in Caldwell, ID. a few years ago. We loved every minute of it. We purchased a couple of CD's as well and we love listening to them. We had hoped you would return back to Idaho. When we travel to the Oregon and Washington area we always check to see if you will be in the vicinity, but no luck so far.
Sorry I missed you guys at the Jefferson County Fair last weekend. Looking forward to October-it looks like you'll be at Galway Bay in Ocean Shores but I don't see dates posted yet. See you in Port Angeles if you get here sooner. Rose
Caught your show at the Lynden Fair this past week. Awesome! Did you guys ever play at Hess Village in Hamilton, ON in the 90s?
Love your sound...miss the Oliver Tomatoe Fest.
i am an old friend of dayle murray jennings and she was telling me about the band so i'm in here checking it out....
I am a new fan after being turned away from the demo derby at the fair, my girlfriend and I were looking for a reason to be there. You guys were it, thanks for a great performance.

Had the good fortune of hearing you guys last night at Terrace Park in Arlington. What an outstanding performance! We'll catch you again soon and be buying your CD's.
You all are missing the great weather in in Port Angeles, but my mom (Lorentzen) tell's me I need to swing by the fair in Jefferson County. Hope all is going well for you guys and let Nolan know that I will still let him join the Army if he chooses HAHAHA!
