A Legendary Evening With Gordon Lightfoot!

 
Scored some primo seats in the 7th row to see the legendary Gordon Lightfoot, arguably Canada's greatest songwriter, at Coquitlam's Red Robinson Theatre last night. Bob Dylan once opined, "Gordon Lightfoot, every time I hear a song of his, it's like I wish it would last forever." Though Lightfoot's voice at age 74 may have lost some of it's lower register, he is still thoroughly entertaining. And to echo Dylan's platitudes, few songwriters in history can even come close to Lightfoot's ability to write songs that are drenched with heartfelt emotion. Give a listen to "The Last Time I Saw Her"
