Twangy troubadour Shannon Lyon will perform on Saturday, June 7, in Red Deer.
The Ontario-native, who aimed to create “cosmic Canadian music” on his 10 studio albums will perform at The Velvet Olive.
Lyon began by playing with his first band, Strange Days, and released his first solo album, Buffalo White, in 1994.
Over the next few years, he toured the country, either on his own or with friends such as Blue Rodeo, Oh Susanna, The Sadies, The Skydiggers and Richard Buckner.
He then headed to Holland in 2000, immersing himself in the culture, playing clubs and writing more music. He returned to Canada after almost a decade of performing around Europe, releasing a series of well-received records, including Broken Things and Wandered (2012).
When not making his own tunes, Lyon is producing the work of other singer-songwriters. Most recently, he’s been mixing and producing albums for Jamie Clark and James Gray.
Lyon looks forward to giving Red Deer fans a preview of his up-and-coming release. For more information about his Red Deer show, please call 403-340-8288.
