Ian Tyson

Half of the early-'60s folk group Ian & Sylvia, Ian Tyson retreated from performing and recording after the duo disbanded in the mid-'70s to become a rancher in the foothills of southern Alberta, Canada. He quietly returned to music-making in the 1980s, releasing a series of albums that focused on detailed songs about the concerns of the working cowboy. Tyson was born in Victoria, British Columbia. As a child he was involved in rodeo, not music -- he didn't learn to play the guitar until he was recovering from rodeo-related injuries. In the late '50s, he began performing as a folksinger. In 1961, he met singer/songwriter Sylvia Fricker and the two musicians began performing together; they also married three years later. Ian & Sylvia and their band, Great Speckled Bird, became popular on the folk scene and released their self-titled debut album in 1962. In 1963, they released Four Strong Winds; the title track, written by Tyson, became a folk standard. Ian & Sylvia successfully recorded together through the mid-'70s. The duo also began hosting a television show, Nashville North, which became The Ian Tyson Show when the couple split up in the middle of the decade.

After Ian & Sylvia's breakup, Tyson recorded Ol' Eon. He temporarily retired from recording in 1979 to work his ranch, but returned with Old Corrals and Sagebrush in 1983. In 1984, he toured with Ricky Skaggs and also released an eponymous album. Tyson released a third album, Cowboyography, two years later, and in 1991 he released another popular Canadian album, And Stood There Amazed, which contained the hits "Springtime in Alberta" and "Black Nights." Subsequent releases include 1994's Eighteen Inches of Rain, 1996's All the Good 'Uns, and 1999's Lost Herd. Tyson released Live at Longview in 2002, followed by Songs from the Gravel Road in 2005. Straining to sing over an excessively loud and bass-heavy soundboard mix at an Ontario country music festival in 2006 and exposure to a virus in 2007 resulted in irreversible scarring to Tyson's vocal cords, giving his performing voice a self-described gravelly quality and similarity to Mark Knopfler's, as fully displayed on Tyson's From Yellowhead to Yellowstone and Other Love Stories album, released by Stony Plain in 2008. ~ Sandra Brennan & Michael McCall

on Pandora did I know my cowboy friend from Alberta (eh) was the same Ian whose music this old girl from Wyoming enjoyed for years. A marvelous entertainer but a fine gentleman, too.

I used to have a tack booth at National Western, in the concourse around the arena. We always visited with another one of the real ones and always looked forward to seeing Ian, not on the stage but behind his merchandise, western clothes, especially shirts in all sizes. My youngest boy was 66 and still growing. He came up the stairs wearing a XXX Wrangler to show me. He said he just wanted to say, This shirt is too large! Ian thought it was a kick, too. Not until I saw the current pic

I have loved Someday Soon since the first time I heard it. It was cut by Judy Collins, but I went on a hunt to get a hold Ian's original. It got me through Vietnam.

What a voice! Feel lucky to have seen him live (with Sylvia) back in the 60's
Report as inappropriate
Ian is even more amazing now that his voice has been repaired. He is certainly accepted in the U.S. His appearances sell out in two days or so.

I had the privilege of seeing Ian Tyson live at East Longview Hall a few years ago. If you've never seen him in that setting, you've missed one of the greatest music experiences of this generation.

We are playing this beautiful song at my brother's funeral. Ian sings the songs of our west with such skill and musical ability that he takes your breath away. Thanks Ian for the memories made more lovely because your songs

I like so many of his songs -- Four Strong Winds is the only song I've ever been able to play on a guitar -- but Summer Wages is just the best, in so many ways.
Report as inappropriate
Ian and Sylvia picked me up when I was hitchhiking cross country with my guitar and damn little else. WAY back, but great people. I have been a fan since the first album they did in the 60's. He still is my favorite.

Ian Tyson is the best singer/song writer that Canada has produced. As a Canadian I am proud of him and enjoy him every chance I get.
