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

A holiday circus spectacular, a tribute to The Beatles and an annual reunion of the Cascadian Freak Family.
*Wanderlust Circus *
The ways of the Circus are older than the nightclubs, older than the banks, older than the cities. These most ancient of performative traditions have always existed just slightly to the left of the Mundane World. Now, at the first flickering of the 21st Century, this piebald clan is once again shedding its skin and remaking itself in the funhouse mirror image of The Second Great Depression.
To aid and abet this latest glorious rebirth, Wanderlust has established itself as the premiere circus operation in The City of Roses, helmed by Noah Mickens and Nick “The Creature” Harbar, and drawing from a roster of performers, designers and technicians from all the greatest shows on Earth. Acrobats, aerialists, hand balancers, stilt dancers, trick ropers, jugglers and jazz-bos, crooners and clowns – these arts are their chosen creed, their map through the wilderness.
Theirs is a story of an immortal carnie family blessed and cursed to live forever on the endless road that runs between all ports of call, past every sight and across every barrier. The logic of dreams pervades the spaces between the action onstage and the lives of the characters backstage, and from those artifices to the True World of performer and audience.
2012 marks the further refinement of their fabulist fairytale revue into a pair of new forms, like two faces on a tumbling coin. In both cases our new-broke trail leads Wanderlust Circus to a more complete synthesis with music – one embracing the breakneck madcappery of the 1920s novelty bands, one laying its root deep in the ecstatic ghetto of the Dubstep Massive.
