Troubadour Shannon Lyon at Gatzke

Canadian Troubadour Shannon Lyon at Gatzke Orchard Sunday, July 28, 2013

Shannon Lyon performs at the Gatzke Orchard this Sunday, July 28th, part of a 24-date tour taking him from Ontario to Vancouver Island. Over the years, he has toured and shared the stage with artists like Ray LaMontagne, Lucinda Williams, Blue Rodeo and Bruce Cockburn.

“I’m excited to see Shannon Lyon perform again after all these years,” says Joseph Pinheiro, Event Manager at Gatzke Orchard.

“I was working at PolyGram Music in Toronto and tried signing Shannon when he released his first couple albums, “Buffalo White” and “Mods Rule”- I still think he is one of Canada’s best kept secrets too. I’m looking forward to the Okanagan discovering his great songs.”

Lyon is looking forward to his Oyama debut as well.

“I’m looking forward to the show indeed, especially looking forward to getting reacquainted with someone who believed in me since my first album was released back in 1994. Thank you JP!”

“This is my first full Canadian tour since the middle 90’s. After spending the past 13 years living in Europe I feel like a young man again, falling in love with this beautiful country all over again! Taking all the risks and all the pleasures!”

Shannon’s most current album “Broken Things” is a very raw and stripped down album echoing the Buffalo White era. The album is out on Busted Flat Records. If you can’t catch him in Oyama check out the rest of his tour dates.
