Canadian folk legend and Juno award winner, Ian Tamblyn, will be returning to Willisville Mountain for a concert in Whitefish Falls on April 15, 2011.
It has been a busy time for Tamblyn who was named the Canadian English Songwriter of the Year at the Canadian Folk Music Awards. He continues to tour from coast to coast, as he has for the past 40 years, while finding time to record 31 albums, write six plays and music scores.
Tamblyn’s ’ Willisville Mountain’ album came as a result of his involvement in the Willisville Mountain Project and the La Cloche Mountain Preservation Society’s campaign to ‘Save Willisville Mountain’. The LCMPS and Village of Willisville have petitioned Vale to exclude Willisville Mountain and area from their license to quarry. They hope to preserve the beautiful and historically significant Willisville Mountain for generations to come.
