The Folk Brothers for Jan. 11, 2023: Remembering Ian Tyson and Blaze Foley

Music programs are only online for two weeks after they are broadcast.

Ian Tyson passed away at his cattle ranch on Dec. 29. Long after folk stardom with Syliva Fricker in the 1960s, Tyson had a long career as a singer-songwriter who almost single-handedly revived Western (aka "cowboy") music. Blaze Foley (pictured) died by gunshot in 1989. But Brother Bill watched Ethan Hawkes' biofilm Blaze over the holiday, and was inspired to present music from that soundtrack. And more.
