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
The music of Amanda Richards covers a wide and diverse field — from sensuous ballads to old-school rockabilly; soulful bossa-nova to laugh-out-loud country satire. In 2004, at the age of twenty-one she released Not Always Sexy as her first album followed by Live at Mississippi Studios in 2006, which was hailed as “spellbinding across the spectrum, and a standout whose star is on the rise” by the Portland Tribune.
In 2009, Amanda released Who Has Your Heart to great reviews and a growing fan base, with music from the album being picked up by radios stations of different genres. Her latest studio album, the post-apocalyptic, zombie-themed _Play Dead _(2010), was praised by the Portland Mercury as “sweet and enduring, despite Richards’s bloody lyrical content. The end of days never sounded so sweet."
