Four Strong Winds: Ian & Sylvia
featuring a conversation between John Einarson and Ron Robinson
Based on Ian and Sylvia Tyson’s own personal reflections as well as on the recollections of others, John Einarson's Four Strong Winds is the definitive account of this iconic musical duo and a window on a fascinating period in music history.
This is the first time that the duo has endorsed a biography.
John Einarson is a widely-respected rock music historian and author of more than a dozen books including biographies of Neil Young, Randy Bachman and Buffalo Springfield.
In addition he has written for Mojo, Uncut, Goldmine, Discoveries, Record Collector, and Classic Rock and is a frequent contributor to the Winnipeg Free Press.
John wrote the Juno-nominated Bravo TV documentary Buffy Sainte-Marie: A Multimedia Life as well as CBC TV’s The Life & Times of Randy Bachman.
John lives in Winnipeg where he teaches a popular course on rock ‘n’ roll history at the University of Winnipeg.
The former host of the Weekend Morning Show on CBC and an ongoing concern on the stage, Ron Robinson was a founding partner of McNally Robinson Booksellers.
He can be heard on CKUW FM 95.9, hosting Pages, radio for readers, on Thursdays
from 5:00 - 5:30 pm.
