APRIL 8 – JOHN LYON
Best known for his vibrant and moving vocal performances of American Songbook jazz, John has been making music for live audiences since the sixties. He was in the Blackfish Sound and Roadside Attraction bands and performed solo at clubs and festivals across Western Canada. His song “Home, Dear, Home” written for his father, a west coast salmon troller, became an anthem in the Vancouver folk community.
