    Since emerging from the Toronto folk club scene in the early 60s, Gordon Lightfoot has recorded 21 albums (14 for Warner Bros. or Reprise Records). He has had five Grammy nominations and has won 17 Juno Awards in his native Canada. In 1970, in recognition of his contributions in furthering Canadian culture, he received the prestigious Order of Canada citation; in November 1997 he was presented the Governor General’s Award – the highest official Canadian honor, which is conferred on very few (Joni Mitchell is another) for their international efforts in spreading Canadian culture. Gordon was also honored as a charter member of Canada’s Walk of Fame and was elevated to the “companion” of the Order of Canada (highest level). Gordon also was inducted into The Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame.

    But besides his albums, Lightfoot has composed a catalog of classic hits for himself and varied others. The list of artists who have recorded Lightfoot’s songs include Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, Sarah McLachlan, Barbra Streisand, Peter Paul & Mary, Harry Belafonte, Jane’s Addiction, Ian & Sylvia, Richie Havens, Glen Campbell, Anne Murray, Nana Mouskouri, and George Hamilton IV.

    Some of his most popular songs include, “For Lovin’ Me,” “Early Morning Rain,” “Steel Rail Blues,” “Ribbon of Darkness,” “If You Could Read My Mind,” “Sundown,” “Carefree Highway,” “Rainy Day People,” and “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.”

    Gordon Lightfoot is revered by his peers including the great Bob Dylan who once said, “Gordon Lightfoot, every time I hear a song of his, it’s like I wish it would last forever.” Though Lightfoot songs may not be infinite, the memories of his performance at Fraze will last a lifetime!
