About

Celebrate the man who defined the folk-pop sound of the 1960s and ‘70s; is beloved by other musical giants including Bob Dylan; and is perhaps THE most prolific and greatest Canadian singer-songwriter of all time: Gordon Lightfoot. 

This two-night engagement will feature well-known hits and deep album cuts for die-hard fans interwoven with personal anecdotes gleaned from an historic 50+ year musical career. These shows are sure to thrill anyone who relishes Lightfoot’s musical contributions and wants to experience live music performed by a living legend in an intimate, memorable venue. 

Tickets are also available for a Wednesday, April 6th show. 


Gordon Lightfoot‘s 21 albums have been aired for over five decades, racking up radio hits in the USA and his native Canada, and earning him five Grammy nominations. His catalog is so extensive and beloved that the artists who’ve covered his songs are too numerous to list and span every genre imaginable – Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Sarah MacLachlan, Barbra Streisand, Peter Paul & Mary, Jane’s Addiction, Toby Keith, and Hank Williams are but a few. 

Songs like “Early Morning Rain”; “If You Could Read My Mind”; “Carefree Highway”; “Sundown”; “(That’s What You Get) For Lovin’ Me”; “The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald”; “Canadian Railroad Trilogy”; “Ribbon Of Darkness”; “Beautiful”; “Song For A Winter’s Night”; and “Rainy Day People” are just a few of Lightfoot’s immortals. 

An indelible contributor to the Canadian national spirit, Lightfoot’s legacy was celebrated with his 2021 induction into its Songwriters’ Hall of Fame. He is also a member of the Canadian Music and Country Music Halls of Fame. Canada bestowed its highest civilian honors (the Governor’s General Award and Companion to the Order of Canada honor of merit); the Canada Post issued an official Gordon Lightfoot postage stamp in 2007; and he has won 17 Juno Awards. 


ACCOLADES

“Gordon Lightfoot has create some of the most beautiful and lasting music of our time. He is Bob Dylan’s favorite singer/songwriter – high praise from the best of us, applauded by the rest of us.” – Kris Kristofferson

“I’ve always been trying to write songs like Lightfoot. A song of mine like “Come Monday” is a direct result of me trying to write a Gordon Lightfoot song.” – Jimmy Buffett
