The Gift: Songs of Ian Tyson
Led by pianist and vocalist Stewart MacDougall (who has written, toured and recorded with Tyson), this critically acclaimed show has wowed audiences at the Jack Singer Concert Hall in Calgary, The Edmonton Folk Music Festival, The Big Valley Jamboree, and many other major Canadian venues. MacDougall leads this band that includes fellow Tyson alumni: Thom Moon (drums), Gordie Matthews (guitar), Myran Szott (fiddle), and Julian Kerr (bass). Additionally, former One Horse Blue lead singer and guitarist Ian Oscar; celebrated Alberta country vocalist Tracy Millar; and award-winning folk-roots singer John Wort Hannam have become part of the cast for the last eight years.
The Gift has been called "a brilliant troupe of musicians who get to the heart and soul of Ian's work" by Big Valley Jamboree producer Larry Werner, while CKUA's Wide Cut Country host Allison Brock calls The Gift, "a special evening that is a must for all Tyson fans". If you are a fan of the music and career of Ian Tyson, The Gift is just that…a gift to those who understand what a force Tyson has been in country, folk and roots music for well over half a century.
