Flames Across the Border – Mike Ford’s 1812 Show


The 1812-1814 conflict comes alive in music and words with Mike Ford’s original songs about epic events (the invasion of Little York, Great Lake ship battles) famous characters (Tecumseh, Fitzgibbon) and unsung participants (farm-trampled settlers, deep woods couriers). Provoking boisterous audience interaction, challenging myths and assumptions, Flames Across the Border is a song-cycle show specially created for the War of 1812 Bicentennial – made possible by a Grant from the Department of Canadian Heritage’s Federal Secretariat, 200th Anniversary of the War of 1812 and a Grant from The Toronto Arts Council.
