A Gordon Lightfoot Tribute
May 1st, 2023 saw the passing of one of Canada’s greatest musical exports and one of the finest singer-songwriters of all time, Gordon Lightfoot. Now, as a way to keep Lightfoot’s incomparable body of work alive, Indie Award-winning guitarist Robin Bullock offers an evening of all the classic hits – “Sundown,” “Carefree Highway,” “If You Could Read My Mind,” “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald,” “Early Morning Rain” – as well as many exquisite deep-catalog finds for a celebration of Lightfoot’s songwriting legacy. Bullock, a longtime touring sideman with Grammy-winning folk legends Tom Paxton and Janis Ian, is one of the few musicians with both an encyclopedic knowledge of the Lightfoot canon and the vocal and instrumental chops (on 6- and 12-string guitars) to do it justice. Not to be missed, either for Gordon Lightfoot fans or for anyone who loves great songs.
