Who is Gordon Lightfoot you ask?

A “legendary balladeer weaves tales of love and longing in eloquent musical masterpieces that have become enduring standards,” a press release provided by Richmond CenterStage informed. “Combined with his rich, warm voice and nimble guitar technique, Lightfoot’s songwriting talent has led him from the 1960’s coffeehouse scene in his native Canada to pop chart hits with his ground-breaking multi-platinum albums and accolades that range from five Grammy® nominations to 17 Canadian Juno Awards.”

His hits include “If You Could Read My Mind,” “Sundown,” “Early Morning Ran,” “Carefree Highway,” “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald,” and “Canadian Railroad Trilogy.”
