To celebrate Canada at 150 and Guelph at 190, Guelph Museums presents Fourth Friday: Oh Canada Concert Series. Kick off your weekend with a performance by The Cocksure Lads – Mike Ford and Murray Foster! On the Fourth Friday of the month, Guelph Museums offers free admission to the Guelph Civic Museum after 5 PM, and performance at 7 PM.
Visitors can explore all exhibitions, including To The Gathering Place, Canada Eh and Wall of Art: Standing Guard.
In 2010, Murray Foster and former Moxy Früvous bandmate Mike Ford recorded a collection of songs in a Beatles-era Britpop style under the name The Cocksure Lads. That CD – The Greatest Hits of the Cocksure Lads (1963-1968) – became the jumping off point for a feature film, a 2nd CD Mad Lad Plan, and a television script. The band performed on CBC’s Dragons’ Den in January 2014 to promote The Cocksure Lads movie.
The Cocksure Lads movie was released in theatres across Canada in August 2015.
Mike Ford and Murray Foster co-starred in last summer’s McCrae House Backyard Theatre performance, Sons of 17.
