AN EVENING OF
COWBOY SONGS AND STORIES
AUGUST 25 – 7:30 PM
CANADIAN ICONS SERIES:
CORB LUND & IAN TYSON
OPENING ACT: TIM HUS
“I am looking forward to bringing the ‘Best of the West’ to the heart of the Badlands,” Tyson says. “Having mentored Corb over the years makes working with him now a lot of fun!”
“Cowboy Songs and Stories” will see Tyson and Lund share the stage, trading songs and stories throughout the performance. The one-night engagement follows on the heels of the duo’s 2017 critically acclaimed, sold-out performances in Ottawa, Victoria, Vancouver and Edmonton
Fans might recognize the format from the string of shows the pair did to mark the 100th anniversary of the Calgary Stampede in 2012—but this iteration of “Cowboy Songs and Stories” will come with a fresh twist for 2018. “We’ve really got to know each other over the years—maybe a bit too well,” Lund jokes. “I think our friendship shines through when we play, and the audience can feel it. Ian is a legend, so it’s a privilege and honour to share the stage with him—and I’m lucky to call him a friend.”
Alberta’s own Tim Hus will open the concert.
There’s nothing like a concert at the Badlands Amp. Our natural amphitheatre has great sight lines, clear sound, and incredible views of our surrounding hills all under a big Alberta Sky.
