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
Reviews & Ratings
Barry McGuire stepped into the public eye in 1962 on the Andy Williams Show as the gravelly voiced lead singer of The New Christy Minstrels. He launched his musical career with the million-sellers “Green Green” and “Green Back Dollar.” In 1965, at the heart of the peace movement, McGuire went solo. His growing awareness of social hypocrisy was expressed in his third hit “Eve of Destruction” which echoed around the world as an anthem of the times. Three years later, Barry was cast as the male lead in the original Broadway production of “Hair.” Once again his voice was heard proclaiming the ideals of a radical generation. Dick Clark says, “When world events collide with ‘Rock & Roll,’ you get Barry McGuire.”
John’s vocal and instrumental talents have kept him in the company of such musical luminaries as Roger McGuinn, Gene Clark, Clarence White, Nicky Hopkins, Mac Rebenack (Dr. John,) Doug Sahm (The Sir Douglas Quintet,) The Mamas and Papas, Johnny Rivers, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Rick Danko and Richard Manuel (The Band) … and many others.
