High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Sylvia Tyson, CM (born Sylvia Fricker 19 September 1940 in Chatham, Ontario, Canada), is a singer-songwriter, broadcaster, and guitarist. In the 1960s, she was half of the popular folk duo Ian and Sylvia along with her performing partner Ian Tyson (who was also her husband from 1964 to 1974). Later in the 1960s, she and Ian Tyson also headed the country-rock band Great Speckled Bird. More recently, she has been a member of the all-female folk group Quartette. Perhaps her best-known song was "You Were on My Mind", which was originally recorded by Ian and Sylvia in 1964. The song became a massive hit single in the mid-1960s for the San Francisco-based folk-rock band We Five and also for the British pop singer Crispian St. Peters. It has become a rock and roll standard which has been covered numerous times, most recently by Serena Ryder in her November 2006 album If Your Memory Serves You Well.
