Musician, adventurer and playwright, Ian Tamblyn is among the most prolific Canadian artists of his generation. A 2013 Ottawa Citizen review described him as “a Canadian legend … [whose] songs are counted right up there with those of Gordon Lightfoot and Bruce Cockburn.” In the words of the music columnist John Kelman, “Ian Tamblyn has become, in his sheer scope of subject matter, the songwriting voice of Canada.” He has released 38 albums and CDs featuring his more than 2000 songs and instrumental compositions (a partial discography is listed below), and has composed music for over 100 theatrical productions, written 13 plays, and composed soundtracks for more than 40 documentary films and for 26 episodes of the internationally syndicated animated television series “Toad Patrol.” The importance of Ian Tamblyn’s body of work has been acknowledged with a long list of awards and honours, including Juno Awards, Canadian Folk Music Awards and an honorary doctorate from Lakehead University. In 2012 he was made a Fellow of the Royal Canadian Geographic Society for his guiding work in the Canadian Arctic.
