by email@example.com on 2/15/2022
Gordon Lightfoot is a Canadian singer-songwriter and guitarist who is a legendary giant in folk, folk-rock, and country music. He helped define the folk-pop sound of the 1960s and 1970s. Gordon is often thought of as Canada's greatest songwriter and is known internationally as a folk-rock legend.
Among his biggest hits are: "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald", "Care Free Highway", "Sundown", "If You Could Read My Mind", and several more popular Gordon Lightfoot songs.
Recently at a gig someone requested songs by Gordon Lightfoot. I have always cherished his music but had not yet included any of his songs in my repertoire. This person mentioned that my voice would be ideal for his songs. So, I began thinking about it and listening to his recordings. There are several of Gordon’s songs which I would really like to do. I decided to start with “If You Could Read My Mind”. So, I have been working on my own arrangement of this song and am now currently performing it. I may also add more of his songs to my repertiore over time.
