Steamboats and Railways, Love and Loss, Triumphs, and Tragedies

The Canadian West is a land of legends, where pioneers and outlaws, heroes and villains, steamboats and railways, fur trade and rebellion, love and loss, and triumph and tragedy shaped the nation’s destiny.

Tim Isberg, a singer/songwriter, veteran soldier, and gifted storyteller, invites you to explore our fascinating history based on his acclaimed third album 'Prairie Fire', featuring original story songs that breathe life into the captivating tales of events and characters of the 19th century Canadian Prairies and Western Plains.

From the arrival of the railway that sparked a boom in immigration and commerce, to the legendary scout Jerry Potts who aided the arrival of the North West Mounted Police and relations with indigenous peoples, to the steamboats on the Saskatchewan River that transported goods and people across the vast territory, to the letters from an early Mountie to his fiancée in Toronto that reveal the hardships and joys of frontier life, each song is a window into the lives of those who shaped the Canadian west.

Through his artful storytelling in Prairie Fire, Tim Isberg not only entertains but also educates, offering audiences a melodious journey through our nation’s formative years.
