From Ian Tyson
Ian Tyson: Musician, rancher, storyteller, and Canadian icon. Canada’s legendary songwriter releases Raven Singer, his first album of new songs in four years. At 78 this man is not slowing down. In 2012, Ian Tyson is closing in on nearly six decades of performing. Almost six decades of making recordings of the songs he now writes in the 100-year-old stone building a mile down the gravel road from his ranch house. Six decades of singing stories that tell the real truth about horses and men, love sustained and relationships broken, heroes and heroines and the land and the weather and the Prairie sky.
