Members of the three-person band, Tillerâ€™s Folly, said they were honoured to have their latest album, Stirring Up Ghosts â€“ Volumes 1 & 2 nominated by the Western Canadian Music Awards.
While the announcement of the bandâ€™s nomination in the Roots Duo/Group Recording of the Year category was made in early May, it will be September before the group finds out if they win.
The awards gala takes place Sunday, Sept. 20 at 9 p.m., at McPherson Playhouse in Victoria.
Tillerâ€™s Folly songwriter, vocalist, and guitar player Bruce Coughlan has lived in Langley for many years, but now calls Maple Ridge home. His bandmates, Laurence Knight (bass, vocals) and Nolan Murray (fiddle, mandolin, mandocaster) are also Lower Mainland residents.
They have been playing together for about two decades and this latest album is their ninth. Stirring Up Ghosts â€“ Volumes 1 & 2 is described by the band as a project of epic proportion.
This Celtic influenced Canadiana, newgrass blend of music tells the stories that have led to todayâ€™s Canada.
