An Evening With Simpson's Folly

Join us for an evening of song, music and dance! Bar and snacks available while you go back in time with us for a slice of musical history. 

Simpson's Folly 

Dressed in the costume styles of 1815 or 1850, the members of Simpson’s Folly sing the songs, play the music and tell the stories that reflect life in the time period of the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars (1793-1815) or the Scottish settlement at Red River. Their group name, Simpson’s Folly is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the ‘stone fort’ located thirty-two kilometres north of Winnipeg, Manitoba. The musicians are: Frederick Carsted - bodhran, hard-shoe step dance, re-enactor of historic events, vocals, and recitations. Johanna Handford - celtic harp, button accordion, concertina, recorder, guitar and vocals. Dorothy Long - mandolin, button accordion, bodhran and vocals. James Long - 12 string guitar, harmonica, fiddle, cello and vocals.
