1963 Newport Folk Festival

Ian Tyson and Sylvia Fricker began singing together in 1959 and rose to popularity with the folk movement on the strength of their fellow Canadian Gordon Lightfoot's "Early Morning Rain," and Ian's own songs "Four Strong Winds" and "Someday Soon," which was later recorded by Judy Collins. Ian and Sylvia married a year after their debut performance at the Newport Folk Festival.
