Ian Tyson

Canadian Singer-Songwriter

Ian Tyson is 86 now. And he’s still working on his music every day. Still touring. Still running the Tyson ranch south of Calgary. Still watching the West as it continues to change. Still writing about love, horses, and the country and sky he loves. Tyson doesn’t look backwards at six decades of a career that’s earned him countless awards, the Order of Canada, and most recently, induction into the Canadian Songwriters Hall Of Fame - and a devoted following. He faces the future with a mixture of optimism and resignation. Your eighties, Tyson tells people, is not a time for wimps. Bring it on, he seems to say.
