Ian Sherwood


Ian Sherwood is a Halifax-based singer-songwriter who is in a constant state of creative motion.  When the humble and hardworking musician takes to the stage, he delivers songs that dance the line between folk and pop; a natural storyteller, he adds much wit to his shows as he engages the audience with his lyrics, musicianship, and his stage presence.  He was named Contemporary Singer of the Year by the Canadian Folk Music Awards (2013), Best Male Artist of the Year by the International Acoustic Music Awards (2012), and was the 2008 and 2010 Music Nova Scotia Musician of the Year. His five studio albums – 2017’s Bring the Light being his most recent offering – show off Ian’s versatility and ability to write catchy hooks.  Ian has played several Folk Harbour Concert Series shows, headlined this year’s Folk Fiesta!, and last played at the Festival in 2014.
