Ian Thomas: Not Gone Yet!

Ian Thomas will take the stage at The Sobey Family Theatre on April 20 and at Harbourfront Theatre on April 21. Both shows are at 7:30 pm. Ian Thomas is a film-composer with 22 feature films to his credit; an author; an actor, much sought after as a voice-over artist and recognized for roles such as Dougie Franklin on The Red Green Show… and, of course, a JUNO award-winning singer-songwriter whose songs helped form the bedrock of the Canadian musical landscape, a contribution recognized by SOCAN when Ian was honoured with a National Achievement Award for Songwriting. Ian Thomas first garnered major radio airplay in1973 with the top-40 single “Painted Ladies”, followed by a string of hits throughout the 70s and 80s, and on into the 90s with his band The Boomers. Whether performed by him or covered by artists including Santana, Chicago, Manfred Mann, America, Bon Jovi and Bette Midler, Ian’s many hits continually achieved heavy rotation on radio across Canada and around the world — recordings such as “Come The Sun”, “Long Long Way”, “Right Before Your Eyes”, “Coming Home”, “Pilot”, “Hold On”, “Time Is The Keeper”, “Liars”, “Wishes”, “The Runner”, “Levity”, “Back To Square One”, “Love Ya Too Much”, “You Gotta Know”, “One Little Word”, “Dirty Love”, “To Comfort You”, and of course, “Painted Ladies.” In the new millennium, Ian joined fellow singer-songwriters Murray McLauchlan, Marc Jordan and Cindy Church to form Lunch At Allen’s, touring coast to coast for the past two decades, and now with five albums to their credit.
