Newfoundland songwriter Ian Foster’s first concert on Lake Erie’s scenic shoreline in Kingsville! Local songbird Allison Brown will sing a couple tunes to kick off a dinner concert featuring songs and stories by St. John’s NFLD’s Ian Foster…

Newfoundland native Ian Foster comes from a place of stories, and he knows how to tell them. He’s a road worn troubadour who has been described as having a keen poetic sense and a searcher’s infinite wisdom in his writing, and yet can make you laugh between songs. He writes in a modern folk style and exudes a love of storytelling. CBC’s Bob Mersereau described him as being “a fine example of what a 21st century folk performer should be doing.”

Often likened to Canadian songwriting icon Bruce Cockburn in both writing and guitar style, Ian’s music has been described as thoughtful, introspective, cinematic, hopeful, atmospheric, and cathartic by critics and fans alike. He has numerous awards, nominations and co-writes to his credit, including SOCAN Songwriter of the year nominations, Lyric finalist for the International Songwriting Competition (Nashville, TN), and a co-write with Canadian songwriting legend Ron Hynes.

Ian has toured in Canada, the U.S., Germany, The Netherlands, Austria, and Italy, and has had his music played on radio internationally. He has performed his music for audiences of all ages – from school workshops to seniors’ homes; festivals in Canada, U.S., and Italy; soft seat theatres, churches, pubs and house concerts.
