Early Morning Rain: the songs of Gordon Lightfoot

July 9, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Early Morning Rain: the songs of Gordon Lightfoot

is a 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), lovingly arranged 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 musical development. This a musical loveletter with new arrangements to familiar classics.

John McLachlan (guitar & vocal) performs with Marc Atkinson (lead guitar & mandolin), featuring 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,” “Canadian Railroad Trilogy,” and many more.
