Event Notes


Classic Lightfoot Live stands as Canada’s premier homage to the legendary folk rocker, Gordon Lightfoot. Led by the remarkable trio of vocalist and guitarist John Stinson, bassist Bob Doidge (Gord’s record producer), lead guitarist Eric Kidd, this show whisks you down a nostalgic journey through Lightfoot’s iconic music. The show also includes percussionist Malcolm Gould and Liz Anderson on keyboards.

Gordon Lightfoot’s impact on music is immeasurable; he’s hailed as Canada’s greatest songwriter, shaping the folk-pop sounds of the ‘60s and ‘70s. His name is synonymous with timeless tales of trains, shipwrecks, rivers, highways, love, and solitude. His repertoire, including classics like “For Lovin’ Me,” “Early Morning Rain,” “Steel Rail Blues,” and “Ribbon of Darkness,” have left an indelible mark on the world. Stinson, with his mastery of both six and twelve-string guitars, emulates Gord’s signature sound with astonishing accuracy. Trained by the legendary Red Shea and backed by a talented ensemble of seasoned musicians, Classic Lightfoot Live promises an authentic and emotionally resonant experience, faithfully recreating Lightfoot's studio recordings.
