The Cocksure Lads return to Guelph for Oh Canada Concert at Guelph Civic Museum

GUELPH, ON, November 20, 2017: Accomplished Canadian musicians Mike Ford and Murray Foster will perform as The Cocksure Lads at Guelph Civic Museum Friday, November 24 as part of the museum’s Fourth Friday Oh Canada concert series. The Cocksure Lads are a 60s Britpop-inspired band formed by Moxy Früvous bandmates Ford and Foster after two decades of writing songs in that genre for their own amusement. The Greatest Hits of the Cocksure Lads, 1963-1968 was released in 2010, and was followed by a feature-length film, The Cocksure Lads Movie, in 2014.

Foster, the writer-director of The Cocksure Lads Movie, is well-known as the bass player for Moxy Früvous and Great Big Sea.  He is a songwriter, musician, music producer, writer, teacher, and founder of Toronto Songwriting School. Known for his original songs, humour and vast knowledge of Canadian history, Ford is a Juno-nominated Franco-Ontarian artist who was awarded The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal in 2012 for his ongoing musical explorations of Canadian history.

The duo returns to Guelph after co-starring in the 2016 McCrae House Backyard Theatre production, Sons of 17.

Admission to the Museum is free after 5 PM on Fourth Fridays.  The concert begins at  7 PM.

Guelph Civic Museum is located at 52 Norfolk Street.
