Thread Name: Thoughts on Gordon Lightfoot
Subject: RE: Thoughts on Gordon Lightfoot
I also saw the PBS special concert and was impressed at how strong he was at his age, but surprised at how frail he looked. I saw him in concert in 69 at Rock Creek in DC. He opened for Peter Paul and Mary and almost stole the show. He broke a string and carried on a dialogue with the audience , changed it in about 2 minutes and was up and running again. BTW, Ian Tyson was at Kerrville 2 years ago and has morphed into quite a cowboy singer. I know he is still revered as a god up north but he gave the impression that he hold us "old folkies" in low regard.
