Internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter and multi award winner, Ian Tyson, celebrated five decades of performance in 2012 with a full schedule of concerts and the release of a new book published by Random House of Canada. Tyson continues to keep his loyal fans in awe with songs that range from his classics – Four Strong Winds, Someday Soon and Navajo Rug to his newest works which he continues to write with inspired vigor. Throughout 2008, Tyson shot a TV Music/Documentary Special for Canada’s Bravo Chanel which aired in January 2010 AND ON CBC TV in 2011. At age 78, Tyson maintains a busy touring performance schedule which he combines with the work on his Alberta ranch, which is nestled in the foothills of the Rockies south of Calgary. It’s a workload that would exceed that of most people generations his junior.
