Canada's most iconic cowboy storyteller and songwriter Ian Tyson makes a rare Portland appearance with this Alberta Rose Theatre show. Perhaps best known in the U.S. for his hit song "Four Strong Winds," which was voted Canada's No. 1 song of the 20th century and made world-famous by Neil Young, Tyson turned 80 in September 2013, but his energy remains undimmed. Since 2000, he's released five albums, filmed a music documentary, penned a bestselling autobiography -- all while taking care of his working ranch in southern Alberta. Join this legendary singer-songwriter as he reflects on a five-decade musical career that's produced some of the most beloved cowboy songs of the modern era. Learn More

I love the concept of this event. It did not quite meet my expetations but that was only due to unforseen circumstances and they had to make last min. adjustments to the agenda. All in all it was a fun evening. It was open for children but nudity was not quite appropriate for the kids.
Quotes & Highlights
*April 6, 2012: Night One – “The Road”
*The opening night is a celebration of the road – hobos, gypsies, vagabonds, troubadours and wanderers – featuring the music of Portland’s own Vagabond Opera and Professor Gall, accompanied by the finest in circus, burlesque and vaudeville. Tears of Joy Puppet Theatre will also be doing a special performance.
*April 7, 2012: Night Two – “The City”
*Night two celebrates life in the city – from the alleyways of Paris to the banks of the Thames to the buzzing streetlights and nightclubs of New York. Portland swingtime supergroup The Stolen Sweets, Strangled Darlings and Boy & Bean provide the music, accompanied by the finest in dance, burlesque and vaudeville.
*April 8, 2012: Night Three – “The Big Top”
*The final night of the first annual Umbrella Festival takes us under the big top. Carnies, freaks, geeks, feats of incredible strength and beauty erase the dull drudgery of our workaday existence and transport us into a fantasy land where anything is possible. Portland’s own Wanderlust Circus Orchestra, Hurqalya (formerly Negara), and Aeon Now provide the music, accompanied by acrobats, sword swallowers, and vaudevillians of all stripes.
