Ian Tyson, musician, rancher, storyteller and Canadian icon celebrated his 80th birthday last fall but shows no sign of slowing down.

Between his ranch in the foothills of the Rockies with fences to mend, horses to train and land to conserve to concert stages in Montana, Toronto, New York, New Mexico and all points between. Join this legendary man for a unique evening of Songs and Stories on Friday, June 27 at the Tidemark Theatre.

In the last 10 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.  After numerous Canadian Country Music Awards, and membership in the elite Juno Awards Hall of Fame, he has three honorary Doctorates and is proudly a member of the Order of Canada.  Four Strong Wings was chosen Canada’s #1 song of the 20th century by CBC listeners.

In 2012, Tyson closed out the year by undergoing a corrective voice procedure that resulted in his voice becoming stronger than ever.  Tyson has been singing about love sustained, relationships broken, heroes and heroines and the real truth about horses and men 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 will give fans a show they won’t forget.
