100 Years of Calgary Cowboys
An evening of stories, songs and memories with Ian Tyson and Corb Lund
Experience 100 years of Calgary Cowboys with internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter and multi-award winner, Ian Tyson, and JUNO award winner, Corb Lund; an intimate, one-of-a-kind event, you won’t want to miss.
Ian Tyson is celebrating five decades of live performances in 2012 with a jam-packed schedule of concerts and the release of a new CD “Raven Singer”. At age 78, 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.
Tyson maintains a busy touring schedule combined 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 most people generations his junior.
JUNO award winner and seven-time CCMA Roots Artist of the Year, Corb Lund is, at the heart, an unparalleled regional storyteller. Losin’ Lately Gambler, Corb’s sixth album and first major international release, is another engrossing collection of sharply drawn characters and richly authentic tales inspired by his own ancestry from the Canadian West.
Lund was born and raised in rural Southern Alberta. He has been singing about his country upbringing for more than a decade on critically acclaimed albums such as Five Dollar Bill (2002) and Hair in My Eyes like a Highland Steer (2005).
There’s no better way to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Calgary Stampede than with an evening of stories, songs and memories with Tyson and Lund. Get ready to experience the west the way it was meant to be heard with music’s finest cowboys.
Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind event with the legendary Ian Tyson and Alberta’s own troubadour, Corb Lund at the Martha Cohen Theatre – July 9, 10, 11, 14 & 15!
