As a Juno and Canadian Folk Awards -nominated solo artist, Mike Ford has released 5 acclaimed albums of Canadian history-inspired songs, been described as being “rabble-rousing and Pythonesque” and “essential listening” by the Globe & Mail, taken his solo act to festival main stages and MC’d at Fests across Canada, created his own one-hour national CBC Radio Labour Day special (with Age of Persuasion’s Mike Tennant), toured as a swing member of The Arrogant Worms, sung at The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Ottawa for The Vigil Project, created an ever-growing repertoire for his Canada Needs You performances (for which he has just been awarded a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal) and sailed across the Great Lakes on a working Lake Boat with David Francey, from which the two wrote and recorded their album SEAWAY. Latest projects include his new British Invasion band The Cocksure Lads with fellow Früvous member, Great Big Sea’s Murray Foster, his album Le retour d’Étienne Brûlé (en français) and his new War of 1812 song-cycle “Flames Across The Border”, in time for that event’s bicentennial.
Mike is known to many for his former life in the folk/rock/vaudeville Moxy Früvous, with whom he headlined festival stages all across North America and Europe, sold over ¼ million albums, and once crashed through a stained-glass window at a Buffalo in-store performance. Oops.
