Four Chords and the Truth:
Sylvia Tyson, Russell deCarle, Samantha Martin, Don Amero & Friends
|Some nights you just cant prepare for. Thursday night
in Toronto at The Dakota Tavern was one of those nights, as Four Chords
and the Truth took the stage.
Weve said it before, and will say it forever, the power of songs, their stories, and the people that create them is endless. And in a setting like Four Chords provides, legends like Sylvia Tyson and Russell deCarle can share the stage with acclaimed artists like Don Amero and Samantha Martin, and it becomes magical.
Host, and series creator, Andrea England introduced her February 2018 edition lineup to start the show, and played one song of her own to start the night. And from that first song, the full house was treated to some excellent song work, stories, laughs, and even a choral singalong. It was a two hour show that felt like a stopped moment in time.
The original lineup of artists that was announced for the February edition
of Four Chords and the Truth was enough to have us excited for the evening.
And the surprise guests (a staple of the series) were a special treat
that made it all that much sweeter. However, it must be said that the
chance to see a living legend in Sylvia Tyson
on stage at the Dakota was more than we could ever hoped for.
