Horizon Stage Presents: Ian Tyson
September 22 @ 7:30 pm - 8:45 pm
Canadian Country Music Legend
Returning for his 48th performance at Horizon Stage – you love him, we love him, he is The One, The Only, The Legendary – Ian Tyson. Now in his eighties, Ian is still going strong. Still touring. Still running the ranch south of Calgary. Still watching the West as he’s seen it change — and not always for the better. Still writing about love, horses, and the country and sky he loves. And he’s still facing the future with a mixture of optimism and resignation. Now recovered from a torn and damaged voice that drastically changed his sound in 2008, Ian is singing with the strength and range of his earlier years. His smooth, relaxed voice has been part of the musical landscape since the early 60s, when — with his then-wife Sylvia — he conquered the folk boom of the day. Hits kept coming — “Four Strong Winds,” “Someday Soon,” “Summer Wages” and more. Over five decades Ian has earned countless awards, the Order of Canada, and a devoted following. He now stares at the future with clear eyes and a mixture of optimism and regret that sparks his songwriting.
THIS CONCERT IS SOLD OUT.
