Ian Tyson doesn’t just collaborate with anybody.
Sure, the 76-year-old country-folk music icon broke into the business with his former wife Sylvia Tyson in the ’60s, and Ian & Sylvia became giants of that era’s folk movement. And, in recent years Tyson has also performed with the CPO and recorded with Corb Lund.
But working with grades 1 and 2 students from the arts immersion school Calgary Arts Academy? Nobody saw that coming.
Even so, Tyson’s latest recording, A Song For Spirit, is a worthy and touching folk anthem and we owe it all to a blinded bird.
