Ian Tyson, Canadian folk music icon who penned Four Strong Winds, dead at 89

Tyson began his music career in the late 1950s, first hitchhiking across the country from Vancouver to Toronto and then getting swept up in the city's burgeoning folk movement in the bohemian Yorkville neighbourhood.

That's where he met a kindred spirit named Sylvia Fricker and they began a relationship — onstage and off — eventually leading to their breakthrough second album Four Strong Winds in 1964.

Canadian Country Legend Ian Tyson Dies at 89

Tyson was a longtime fixture in the Canadian music scene as a legendary folk, Western, and country-rock singer-songwriter. He kickstarted his storied career as one-half of the folk duo Ian & Sylvia in 1959. By 1961, the pair would become a full-fledged folk act, and husband and wife in 1964. The duo would evolve their sound throughout their career, going on to found and front the country-rock group, The Great Speckled Bird, in 1969.

Over a decade together the pair released over a dozen albums, writing and performing hits like Tyson’s “Four Strong Winds” and “Someday Soon,” and Sylvia’s “You Were on My Mind.” Their songs have been covered countless times by the likes of Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and Judy Collins. The couple even mentored aspiring Canadian singer Gordon Lightfoot.
