The singer-songwriter with an encyclopedic knowledge of Canadian history

Mike Ford is a bilingual JUNO-nominated solo artist who has released five acclaimed albums of Canadian history-inspired songs. Known to many for his former life as a rock performer, he has aptly been described by the Globe and Mail as being “rabble-rousing and Pythonesque”. Using thought-provoking original songs, personal anecdotes, humour, and an almost encyclopedic knowledge of Canadian History, Mike Ford has carved a niche for himself. His fast-paced curriculum-focused concerts, always adapted for audience levels, have succeeded in the challenging task of inspiring young people towards greater interest in Canada’s past and greater involvement in its present and future.
