An Evening With Gordon Lightfoot turned out to be a fantastic time! He is a very talented musician and performer and has been for a long time, he is, after all 73 years young! While he certainly looks his age he certainly doesn’t sound it!
He can still sing and sing he does, all the old favorites from If You Could Read My Mind and Rainy Day People to Sundown and The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. He even does The Canadian Railroad Trilogy which is quite a long song for a live performance but he managed with no problems.
His guitar playing on both 6 and 12 string is as good as ever and his band is top notch. He threw in a few anecdotes but mostly the night was about the music and he did not disappoint. In short, there’s a legend on tour and you may not have many more chances to see him, I know I’m glad I went!
