Renaissance man extraordinare, Teilhard Frost has made Wolfe Island his home with his partner and their two daughters. He is a member of the old time folk music trio Sheesham & Lotus ‘Son and has recently released his first solo album. With music as his ambassador, Teilhard has toured throughout North America and Europe for over twenty years. His music has taken him as far away as Africa, India and Mongolia, studying and teaching.
A multi-instrumentalist and instrument maker, Teilhard Frost specializes in traditional Appalachian old time music. He was raised on Manitoulin Island, Ontario, spending time with the elder fiddlers in the area. At the age of three he was given a jaw harp and harmonica by his father, and his mother gave him a fiddle and a record of Kentucky fiddle tunes. He has continued to play them all ever since.
“An accomplished singer and multi-instrumentalist, Teilhard captures the spirit of the old-time music better than anyone I know. He is a natural born entertainer who's stage presence is a joyful experience!”
