Chautauqua 150 presents: The Gift, The Words and Music of Ian Tyson.

After a five year hiatus The Gift, A Tribute to the Words and Music of Ian Tyson has been resurrected for two shows at Festival Place on August 18 and 19. Festival Place played host to the critically acclaimed show when it first debuted back in 2002 when an all-star cast of Alberta musicians dug into the deep Tyson songbook and delivered outstanding interpretations of his material to two sold out houses.
The entire house band for this version of The Gift consists of Tyson alumni. Stewart MacDougall of Tyson's Chinook Arch Ryders band, Thom Moon, Fiddler Myran Szott and Guitarist Gord Matthews.
Special guests: Tim Hus, One Horse Blue founder Ian Oscar, John Wort Hannam and popular country singer Tracy Millar.
The Gift, The Words and Music of Ian Tyson opens those saddle bags again on August 18 and 19 at Festival Place.
