An iconic singer-songwriter for more than five decades, Gordon Lightfoot is a staple in the world of folk music.
Recording more than 20 albums in his expansive career, he helped define the folk-pop sound of the 1960s and 1970s with hits such as “Early Morning Rain,” “If You Could Read My Mind,” “Carefree Highway,” “Beautiful,” “Song for a Winter’s Night,” “Rainy Day People” and many more.
Now, he’s bringing those classic hits to the Musikfest Café at the ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks in Bethlehem on June 20.
Lightfoot, who this November turns 80, is often referred to as Canada’s greatest songwriter and is known internationally as a folk-rock legend.
Several of his albums achieved golf and multiplatinum status internationally, and his songs have been recorded by renowned artists such as Elvis Presley, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Johnny Cash and Tony Rice, among others.
In 2012, Lightfoot was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, joining the ranks of John Fogerty, Carole King, Dylan, Paul Simon and Leonard Cohen.
This year’s cross-country tour is dubbed “Gordon Lightfoot in Concert: The Legend Lives On.”
The shows will feature well-known hits, as well as deep album cuts.
Tickets are $49-$59. Doors open at 7 p.m. with an 8 p.m. show time.
