Let it Go by Ian Tamblyn
This moving and timely song uses the setting of Canada's spectacular Sable Island to challenge our attitudes towards ourselves and our relationship with the natural world. In 2012, Ian was made a fellow of the Royal Canadian Geographic Society for his guiding and creative work in the Canadian Arctic. He has been awarded the Estelle Klein and Helen Verger Awards for his contributions to Canadian folk music. Tamblyn was voted English Songwriter of the Year in 2010 by the Canadian Folk Music Awards, amongst other awards and nominations in the music and theatre world. Ian's songs have been covered by numerous artists and there is a tribute album of his work entitled Coastline of our Dreams featuring artists like Lynn Miles, Susan Crowe, Hart Rouge and Valdy.
