Ian Sherwood (Canada)
Armed with a saxophone, guitar, looping pedal and a voice that won him a Canadian Folk Music Award for Contemporary Singer of the Year, Ian Sherwood has charmed his way across Canada, the US and UK with his unique brand of genre-shifting music and stage show.
A natural storyteller with a timeless sound, his influences are some of the best folk/pop/country singer-songwriters; from Bruce Springsteen to Tom Petty and Blue Rodeo. Named Best Male Artist by the International Acoustic Music Awards, twice named Musician Of the Year by the Nova Scotia Music Awards. New album Bring the Light released 2019. Bob Mersereau of CBC Fredericton called him “... a natural performer who entertains as much with his wit and stories as with his songs.”
