Songs & Stories by the Legendary IAN TYSON
Ian Tyson, musician, rancher, storyteller and Canadian icon is bringing his songs and stories back to the stage. Between his ranch in the foothills of the Rockies with fences to mend and horses to train to concert stages from Montana to Toronto, New York to New Mexico and all points between, the man leads two busy lives.
In the last ten years, Tyson has released four albums, issued a two DVD concert video and filmed a music documentary for Bravo (which earned international film and television awards). He also penned an autobiography The Long Trail My Life in the West, and continues to be honored for his achievements. Ian’s most recent 2015 CD release, Carnero Vaquero, has been critically acclaimed as being amongst his best music, ever! And in 2017, Ian released his latest single – “You Should Have Known”! He has received numerous Canadian Country Music Awards, membership in the elite Juno Awards Hall of Fame, three honorary Doctorates and is a proud member of the Order of Canada. "Four Strong Wings" was chosen Canada's #1 song of the 20th century.
Ian has been singing about love sustained, relationships broken and heroes and heroines for six decades and the songs that continue to be written are every bit as authentic as they ever were. His one of a kind performance is not to be missed.
Songs & Stories by the Legendary IAN TYSON will be on the Esplanade Main Stage Wednesday, November 29, 2017 at 7:30PM.
