Sylvia Tyson, the seven times Juno-nominated and Canadian Music Hall of Fame inductee will perform at Meaford Hall Arts & Cultural Centre on Thursday, August 10.
Tyson was half of the popular folk duo Ian & Sylvia with Ian Tyson. The two met after a friend of Tyson's heard her sing at a party and let Ian know about her. Tyson had been performing in Toronto clubs as a solo artist, but after he and Sylvia met, they decided to work together as a duo. From the late 1960s to the early 1970s, she and Ian Tyson also fronted the country rock band Great Speckled Bird.
