Early Morning Rain - The Songs of Gordon LightfootEarly Morning Rain - The Songs of Gordon Lightfoot

Audiences will love this wander through the wonderfully crafted songs of one of Canada’s greatest songwriters, presented by musicians perfectly suited for the journey. John McLachlan has chosen over 25 songs from Lightfoot’s first ten, prolific years (1966 through 1976) and has lovingly arranged them in ways that make them familiar to anyone who followed his music, but also fresh for those who have never heard them before, or who are only familiar with his major hits.

The concert unfolds with personal anecdotes and some historical context behind the songs as well as the role the music played in John McLachlan’s early musical development. The is no “tribute” show but rather a musical love letter with new arrangements to familiar classics. The show features some of Lightfoot’s rarely heard gems as well as iconic songs such as: “If You Could Read My Mind,” “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald,” and “Canadian Railroad Trilogy,” and many more.
