Regarded as pioneers of folk and americana, Ian & Sylvia first came to prominence in the early 60’s folk scene in Greenwich Village and Yorkville performing alongside Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and Gordon Lightfoot and were a headliner on the now famous 1963 Newport Folk Festival.
Ian’s composition “Four Strong Winds” is now considered a standard and a CBC poll in 2005 named it the “most essential” piece of Canadian music. Ian & Sylvia were one of the first artists to explore an electric country rock sound, recording with both New York and Nashville musicians. In early 2019 Sylvia discovered a box of old 1/4” analogue tapes in her attic that were professionally recorded in the early 1970s in front of a live studio audience.
Over 20 previously unreleased recordings, included many of Ian and Sylvia’s classics, but also enough to have a full CD of recordings of songs never before included on any Ian and Sylvia album. The Lost Tapes is being released the week prior to Sylvia’s induction into the Canadian Songwriter’s Hall of Fame.
