Default Ian Reminiscing About Gord

Came across this short CD/DVD review in the Toronto Sun (Feb-26-2011). Ian Tyson reminiscing about his career etc.

Ian Tyson
This is My Sky
At 77, Canadian country legend Tyson feels he's "coming to the end of the trail." So, in this low-key doc, the cowboy retraces his steps, reminiscing about Dylan with ex-wife Sylvia, jamming with pals like Gordon Lightfoot and David Wilcox, and playing his classics in a Calgary church with the help of Rhonda Vincent and John Hiatt. As honest and down-to-earth as the man himself.
RATING: 3.5 (out of 5)

From Ian's Site -this description;
http://www.iantyson.com/pages/home.asp

This two-disc collector's edition captures Ian Tyson's life and music through an original authorized documentary and his first official concert video in more than two decades.
The documentary takes fans on a musical odyssey through five decades of his career - from folk to country to cowboy roots.
The collection includes riveting performances of some of his greatest songs, filmed at the historic Knox United Church in Calgary.
