Ian Tyson, who has penned and performed compelling and beloved cowboy and folk songs for nearly six decades, will appear at 8 p.m. Thursday, April 11, at The Palms Playhouse, 13 Main St. in Winters. Tickets are $20.

Tyson, who learned how to play guitar while recuperating in a hospital after a bad fall in a rodeo, has been writing classic songs of the West for nearly 60 years, and has the vocal and musical ability and stage presence to bring those songs into full life.

He first came to prominence in the mid-1960s as half of the ground-breaking and immensely popular folk duo Ian & Sylvia, recording more than a dozen albums, including their best-known hits — Ian’s “Four Strong Winds” and “Someday Soon” and Sylvia’s “You Were On My Mind.”

In the mid-1970s, Tyson settled down on a ranch in Canada and began writing and recording songs about the ranching experience as well as recording cowboy songs both traditional and new. He released his most recent album, “Raven Singer,” last year, and, at age 79, continues to lead a full dual life as a musician and as head of a working ranch in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies in Alberta.

After injuring his voice in 2006, Tyson has recovered and has regained a good deal of his vocal range and flexibility, with just enough gravel left to match the terrain and people of which he sings.

Tickets are available at Armadillo Music in Davis, Watermelon Music in Woodland, Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters and at the door if not sold out. For more information, visit palmsplayhouse.com and iantyson.com.
