One of our Canadian singers and song writers featured in our Made In Canada: A Tribute to Canadian Music.
Ian Tyson, born 25 September 1933, is a Canadian singer-songwriter, best known for his songs “Four Strong Winds” and “Someday Soon.” He was born to British immigrants in Victoria, and grew up in Duncan B.C. A rodeo rider in his late teens and early twenties, he took up the guitar while recovering from an injury he sustained in a fall. He made his singing debut at the Heidelberg Café in Vancouver, British Columbia in 1956. We are singing a couple of his songs, one of which is:

An “explosion,” of musical activity occurred in Canada during the 1940s. Subsequent progress has been nothing short of spectacular, manifesting itself in the emergence of world-rank performers and ensembles, and of a large number of professional composers. In light of this tremendous contribution Canadians have made, Twisted Desert Music Society proudly presents:
“Made In Canada, A Tribute to Canadian Music.
An evening of music written by Canadian musicians and song writers and performed by Ashcroft’s Sage Sound Singers Community Choir and Guests.
Building on the success of their spring 2017 “Tribute To Broadway” concert, Sage Sound Singers Music Director, Michelle Reid, has created a song line-up showcasing just a small portion of the best of Canadian music, with Kamloops pianist Dimiter Terziev bringing to life the four and six part arrangements expertly sung by Sage Sound Singers.
We are also pleased to feature some lovely duets and solos – all by Sage Sound Singers.
To round out the evening, some notable guests will make an appearance. The local group Jenny and the Gents will be delight us with a couple of songs from their Canadian repertoire and Cache Creeks Desert Bells Hand Bell Choir will grace us with their crystal clear bell tones.
It promises to be an evening to remember and a perfect way to celebrate the coming of Spring!
