So it’s safe to say that esteemed singer-songwriter and musician Gordon Lightfoot shares the top of quite of few lists of all-time greats in the music business. His song catalog is incredibly vast and includes such immortals as “Early Morning Rain,” “If You Could Read My Mind,” “Carefree Highway,” “Sundown,” “(That’s What You Get) For Lovin Me,” “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald,” “Cold on the Shoulder,” “Canadian Railroad Trilogy,” “Ribbon of Darkness,” “Beautiful,” “Song for a Winter’s Night,” “Shadows,” “Rainy Day People,” “Did She Mention My Name” and “Summertime Dream,” to name a few.

He refers to his current series of concerts as the “50 Years on the Carefree Highway Tour” and each stop lets him feature his well-known hits as well as some deep album cuts for the die-hard fanatics – all of which are woven together with some of Lightfoot’s own behind the scenes stories and personal anecdotes about his historic 50-year musical career.
