Sylvia Tyson
Sylvia Tyson started performing professionally in 1959 as one-half of the internationally acclaimed folk duo, Ian and Sylvia. She wrote her first song, “You Were On My Mind”, in 1962, and three years later it reached #3 on the Billboard chart for a group called We Five, subsequently hitting the British charts as a hit for Crispian St Peter.

Through the sixties and early seventies, Ian and Sylvia produced thirteen popular albums and toured extensively in North America and Europe, sharing their manager, Albert Grossman, with such luminaries as Bob Dylan, Peter Paul and Mary, The Band, and Janis Joplin. The duo went their separate ways in 1977.

Sylvia has continued to have a long and successful solo career. She has recorded ten albums, written over two hundred songs and has for the last twenty years also recorded and performed with three other well-known Canadian female singer-songwriters in a group called Quartette. As well, she has had a long and distinguished radio and television career, both in music and in documentaries.

Sylvia is an emeritus member of the boards of CARAS (Canadian music awards) of FACTOR (funding body for Canadian artists), and she is one of the founders and past president of The Canadian Songwriters’ Hall of Fame.
She is also a member of the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, The Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame, and has received Canada’s highest civilian honour, The Order of Canada.

In 1985 she co-edited with Tom Russell a songwriter book entitled And Then I Wrote – The Songwriter Speaks, a collection of quotes from songwriters about their craft (from Stephen Foster to Stevie Wonder).

Her first book, Joyner’s Dream, a work of fiction was published in March of 2011, and a CD of music was released under the same title.

She continues to perform as a solo artist, and as a member of Quartette. She is presently working on her second novel.

Eric Andersen + Scarlet Rivera with Cheryl Prashker
Advance: $30.00 / Doors: $35.00 *

Eric Andersen
Eric Andersen, one of the founding fathers of the great American Folk Family, continues to evolve and reinvent himself.  It’s as though he has an unquenchable thirst to create new works and adapt the works of other literary icons of the past. For me that is the mark of a true artist, constantly moving the finish line and looking for new ways to express himself and not fearful of taking the great works of others and translating them into song in his own undeniable fashion.

Andersen is the most elegant of singers.” – Rolling Stone
A singer and songwriter of the first rank.” – The New York Times
Eric Andersen is a great ballad singer and writer.” – Bob Dylan
