Have a wonderful time. Our dream is to some day see Gordon in Massey Hall. Glad we got to visit Toronto this summer again.

Gordon Lightfoot remains a crowd pleaser
By Jane Stevenson, Toronto Sun
First posted: Thursday, November 27, 2014 12:20 PM EST | Updated: Thursday, November 27, 2014 01:02 PM EST

TORONTO - The hardest working man in show business?

Okay, so he’s no James Brown but esteemed 76-year-old Canadian folk singer-songwriter Gordon Lightfoot is certainly not resting on his laurels in his later years - albeit in his gentler and more low-key way.

Lightfoot -- a paler, skinnier version of his former self -- told the Wednesday night crowd at the first of four Massey Hall shows (during his traditional fall residency) that he had already played 88 other shows in 2014.

On top of that, as the intermission ended between his first and second sets, Lightfoot was awarded the inaugural Massey Hall Honors Award for having performed 152 concerts at the venue over the last five decades - more than any other artist - by the CEO and President Charles S. Cutts.

Cutts, who claimed to be making his own debut on the much celebrated stage, called Lightfoot one of Canada’s “musical ambassadors” and certainly the rowdy crowd at Massey Hall - including Toronto mayor-elect John Tory - didn’t disagree continually shouting out their love and affection throughout his hour and 50-minute performance.

“I’m Gordon Lightfoot - rumours of my death have been greatly exaggerated,” the singer joked referring to an erroneous 2010 death report and his very real and serious health battle in 2002 when he suffered an abdominal aortic aneurysm right before he was about to go on stage in his hometown of Orillia.

His voice hasn’t really been the same since - he also underwent a tracheotomy - as his delivery has become more clipped, weaker, and breath-filled, and the higher notes a struggle.

But no one at Massey Hall was expecting to hear the Lightfoot voice of old and instead came to pay their respects to a songwriting legend. (Much like the vocally challenged Bob Dylan at the Sony Centre a week ago where Lightfood was spotted n the crowd.)

Backed by the restrained but incredibly effective ensemble of bassist Rick Haynes, keyboardist Michael Heffernan, drummer-percussionist Barry Keane and lead guitarist Carter Lancaster, Lightfoot (who began dressed in a burgundy velvet jacket before changing into a blue velvet one in the second set) took his performance very seriously and left the stage banter to a mininum.

Staring straight ahead as he sang, often counting off the start of each song, he also didn’t hesitate to take care of himself, administering nose spray a couple of times during the concert (the first time I've witnessed that during a show).

Songs highlights were Rainy Day People, Carefree Highway, Cotton Jenny, Sundown, and Early Mornin’ Rain (which he explained had been covered by “Bob ... I call him by his first name,”) in the first set.

Second set standouts included The Wreck of The Edmund Fitzgerald, If You Could Read My Mind, Baby Step Back, and Canadian Railroad Trilogy (during which he appeared to get choked up at the end).

Lightfoot’s iconic Massey Hall residencies were most recently celebrated with the 2012 release of All Live, a collection of live recordings made at the hall between 1998 and 2001.

In the meantime, he was scheduled for three more Massey Hall performances this week from Thursday to Saturday.

Gordon Lightfoot Massey Hall, Toronto ON, November 26
By Mike Sauve
7/10

Outside of playing road hockey with Don Cherry, it's hard to imagine a more Canadian activity than seeing Gordon Lightfoot at Massey Hall. It's this entrenchment as a national icon moreso than, but combined with, his legacy as an AM radio hit-maker that will help fill the historic venue for an impressive four straight nights.

Lightfoot introduced himself at his first show last night (November 26) with a joke only slightly older than himself, Mark Twain's "Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated."

Most in the crowd were probably aware of the health problems that have robbed Lightfoot of his signature baritone, but the first few songs were still painful to experience. His voice was cracking, and he was missing most notes. As fate had it, the line, "When I was in my prime," from "Painter Passing Through," presented Lightfoot at his weakest, to the point where there was palpable tension in the venue.

One woman near the front spent the entirety of the concert doing her level best to ruin it for all those in a 50-row vicinity, screaming along off-key, and shouting nonsense to fill any silence. In all her drunken horror she also slurred a line that no music critic would have the guts to write, crowed loud enough that Lightfoot almost certainly heard: "Why does he sound like the Bee Gees?"

Though the woman's din continued, Lightfoot's voice strengthened just in time for a string of hits, including "Carefree Highway," "Cotton Jenny" and "Sundown," all but the last of which sounded just fine within Lightfoot's current range.

After intermission, the president of Massey Hall and Roy Thomson Hall, joined by Elizabeth Dowdeswell, the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, presented the 76-year-old troubadour with the first-ever Massey Hall Honours Award. Lightfoot seemed a bit embarrassed by the whole process, but took a photo with the pair nonetheless. [The photo can be seen at the bottom of the review. - ed.]

The second set featured three of Lightfoot's masterpieces, "Canadian Railroad Trilogy," "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" and "If You Could Read My Mind." In his crushed velvet suit, somehow looking as vital as he did vulnerable, he really did seem like, as he sings, "a ghost you can't see."

Bob Dylan has long advocated for Lightfoot as one of the major songwriters, and there are many similarities at this point in their careers. Neither sound anything like they used to, and both are victims of insensitive remarks from fans calling for their retirement. But Dylan works within his limited range to bark out lyrics in a way that is fresh and exciting, whereas the nature of Lightfoot's material traps him into doing his most accurate representation of it, difficult though it may be.

Also, where Dylan's band is heavily relied upon, Lightfoot's equally capable one rarely steps out of the background - there was one solo in the whole set of more than 25 songs. Though battered and frail, Lightfoot's voice will carry the load during the 88 dates he'll play this year. Some will complain, but the real fans know that "heroes often fail," and in doing so, sometimes provide their most heart-rending work.

Just a short note to say the Massey concerts are in full swing and the vibe is on an all time high here in Gordtown.

Since his last concert series here his vocal has come on and continues to come on stronger as time moves on since his illness.

It's a busy time for all and we'll have more to come as things unfold.

Default Toronto Star article on Char and Corfid :)

by Amy Dempsey GTA, Published on Sun Nov 30 2014
http://www.thestar.com/entertainment...very_show.html

The lights fade at precisely 8 o’clock, and out to the stage he saunters, a stick figure in high-waisted jeans and a red velvet jacket, his right hip thrust forward, wispy grey mane combed back, a 12-string guitar slung over his shoulder.
It’s Gordon. Flipping. Lightfoot. The Living Legend. Live at Massey Hall for the 152nd time, paler and more croaky than he used to be, but the fans here to see him know what to expect.
In the front row, a woman with a cap of silver hair takes a deep breath. “Here we go,” she whispers as the crowd rises in a pre-show standing ovation.
Her name is Charlene Westbrook, but the folks here just call her Char. She is a Gordon Lightfoot superfan, part of a group of devotees from across the globe who call themselves “Lightfoot lifers” and plan their vacations around his touring schedule. Char, 59, has seen him in concert more times than she can count, but definitely north of 100. She is from Massey-handy Whitby, but her pals in the audience tonight have come from as far away as California, Germany and Brazil.
For the true fan who can afford to make the pilgrimage to Toronto, Lightfoot at Massey Hall is a right of passage. Char calls this place the Church of Gord, and she is a proud disciple.
“Every time he plays, I find my pew and I’m giving thanks,” she says.
She has sat in quiet rapture in these rickety seats nearly every year he has performed since her first show in 1975. Tonight she holds in her lap a small notebook and pen for jotting down the set list anda palm-sized digital camera for the discreet recording of anything new and unusual.The people who can’t be here are counting on her to document it all for corfid.com, the fan site she moderates.
Lightfoot opens with “Now and Then,” hitting some notes and missing others, but Char taps her foot all the same. She knows it takes a while to warm up sometimes. And yes, his voice isn’t the smooth baritone it used to be, but it sounds just fine to her.

“Of course his voice is different — he’s 76!” she says. “The voice suits the songs more because it’s a voice that has been lived in.”
Char organized the purchase of 75 tickets for last week’s four-night Massey Hall run: four for herself, two for her daughter, Lisa, and the rest for fellow Lightfoot disciples who have come from afar.
For this crew, Lightfoot at Massey Hall is unmissable. They will sit through all four shows, from Wednesday to Saturday, because who knows how long it will last? The health scare in 2002 and the false reports of his death in 2010 have made each performance seem more important.
Two weeks before opening night, Char is at home in Whitby sorting through a basket of Lightfoot ticket stubs and set lists, three decades worth of memorabilia. “I always was a keeper,” she says cheerfully.
Char is a daycare provider whose toddler charges sing along to “Alberta Bound” and can name the man who wrote it: Gordon Light-put.
She is a stained glass hobbyist who recently made a 3D wall hanging of a line of sheet music from “Beautiful” for Pee Wee Charles, Lightfoot’s former pedal steel guitar player, a man she befriended a few years back.
She is a mom whose 26-year-old daughter shares her enthusiasm for the living legend, but whose older son, despite having attended a Lightfoot show at Massey Hall in 1984 while still in the womb, emerged with more raucous musical tastes, which doesn’t so much disappoint Char as bewilder her.
The walls in her TV room are adorned with Lightfoot art — Gord on a stamp, Gord onstage, Gord on the bill at Massey Hall. There used to be more but she toned it down.
In the basement she has every Lightfoot album ever recorded, on vinyl, cassette and CD. In a special frame she keeps a 45 of “If You Could Read My Mind,” which for Char is how it all started, in 1971. She was a heartbroken teen growing up in Etobicoke when she first heard him on the radio. That voice. Those words!
Char danced to “Beautiful” at her wedding in 1977. Twenty-five years later, the songs and friendships developed through Lightfoot’s music helped her carry on after divorce. By then Char had entered the online age of her fandom. Things accelerated quickly after she got the Internet.
“The first thing I did was type in Gordon Lightfoot,” Char says. “And up popped this website and a news group. All these people were on there talking about Lightfoot and I thought, ‘Oh my God. I’m not the only one.’ ”
A few years later she found herself hosting a backyard barbecue for 60 strangers, Lightfoot fans from Australia, Austria, England and across the United States, many of whom are now her friends.They had all come to town for a Lightfoot convention organized by Jenney Rivard, a fan from Connecticut, and timed to his 2001 Massey Hall run.
Over the years, Char and her crew have become friendly with members of the band and their families, including Lightfoot, who Char has spoken to a few dozen times. She and others get backstage passes for many of the shows they attend, and he’s always been generous with his time. He knows Char by name and refers to the larger fan group as the “Net people” (Net as in Internet). He has sung an old song for Char after she asked him to bring it back into the mix — “I’ll Tag Along,” one of her favourites.
She has no romantic feelings for the man, just an intense appreciation for the music and all the positive things it has brought into her life. Not everyone understands her fandom, but that’s fine with Char.
“Behind my back I’m sure some people think, ‘Oh my God, what a waste,’ ” she says with a shrug. “But we all have our things that get us through the day, make our life a little bit better.”
On opening night, an hour before Lightfoot kicks off the show with “Now and Then,” Char and five other fan friends are at a pub, talking about a brilliant line from that very song.
Once inside we found a curious moonbeam/Doing dances on the floor
“Who the hell thinks of that?” asks Deb Brinkley, a dog rescuer from Colorado who flew in for the weekend. The 58-year-old fan is wearing a T-shirt adorned with the giant face of a Siberian husky.
“The man is a musical genius,” says Anne Przykucki, a 34-year-old grant manager from Michigan, the baby of the group. Her Lightfoot fan origin story is among the best: Przykucki’s mother listened to him perform on TV in the hospital when she was in labour, so baby Anne was literally born a fan. She first came to Massey to see him when she was 17.
Everyone here has been making the Toronto trip for years. Jenney Rivard from Connecticut. Donnie Budd from Texas. Lori Uffner from Florida. None are rich; this is just how they choose to spend their vacations. With Lightfoot and with each other. Over the years they have become a family, and this is their reunion.
“A lot of friendships have been forged and a couple of marriages, too,” says Uffner, a Floridian with a thick accent carried over from her early life in Long Island, N.Y. A fan from England wed a fan from New Jersey.
They all say they never tire of Lightfoot, even after four nights in a row.
“Bored of Gord?” says Brinkley the dog rescuer. “No.
“We go every night because there might be something different.”
Once there was an audience fist fight in Burlington, Vt. Another time, at Massey, a guy fell asleep in an aisle seat near the front and Gord paused during “Canadian Railroad Trilogy” to draw attention to him. “And many are the dead men . . . ” he sang. “There’s one now!”
They have seen some pretty theatres and some pretty terrible ones. Sometimes it’s the subtle things that stand out, like if the band plays a song a way they’ve never heard it before.For the close watcher, there’s always a surprise.
The fans get their surprise after intermission, when Lightfoot walks out onstage, sans guitar, with Massey Hall CEO Charles Cutts and the Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Ontario’s new Lieutenant Governor.
They are there to present Lightfoot with the inaugural Massey Hall Honours award, to celebrate his 152nd performance — more than anyone else in the venue’s history
It’s an awkward delivery. Lightfoot nods as the presenters offer lengthy praise, calling him an ambassador who has helped create and shape the Canadian identity. But the fans love it, and Char captures a quick video for the fan website.
Lightfoot has changed into a blue velvet jacket for the second set. Midway through,the band strikes the first few chords of that old classic Char has been waiting for, “If You Could Read My Mind.”
It’s a song that has been a part of her life for 44 years, as long as the man who wrote it has. Char bows her head in appreciation. Then she smiles and sings along.

I never heard any woman screaming from the front row...I was in the front row as well. A woman with a beer did come up to the stage after a song or when he came back from break but said nothing and after a moment went back to whence she came.
I did have a moron behind me on the last night who hummed along with every gawd damned song tho...Really people-respect the fact that people have gone to a concert to hear the guy onstage. Not your sorry assed mumblings and humming. (thanks for posting TG! and good to see and hear you again at McVeigh's!)

I know, I had a guy sitting beside me front row at Massey Hall several years ago who seemed to think Gord's concert was a karaoke session. Good seeing you at McVeigh's, too!

no problem there are pics that go with it… try the link

there was much that could had been elaborated on but the article caught the gist i think… another pub gathering where guests played Gord songs and there was also Wayne Francis (creator of the Lightfoot website) and Val McGee (gl.com) and so if we had Florian it wold have been a hat trick this year !

yeah, John… the article had a cool background that char can tell (she must be pooped!) but something about correcting a comment someone made that called Gord fans "Lightfooters" … she advised that it was Lightheads …maybe it was Lighthead Lifers ( that works ) … regardless, it caught the vibe, eh! … the reporter plays in a band with Kenyon… it's a good all around story, cheers and hope you had a good holiday and are on the mend, Sir… you were missed

Lightfoot lifers and Lightheads are different things. I was referring to many of us who have been fans almost our whole lives... lifelong fans. Lightheads are people who are fans regardless of just finding him or being long time fans. what does it matter?
Had she printed all of what we discussed the article would have ran 6 pages..lol.. Had a ball and was glad to include the fans and friends in the Lightfoot world I know..

i think i got it, so newbies (or non-Lifers) are Lightheads… i don't call myself either so it doesnt matter to me… just a Gord fan… since '67, cos i had no choice, it was just played lots in the household… as a kid, i liked that Lightfoot! album cover… but when playing guitar is when it kicked in most

i wonder how many fans of musicians get together and play/perform their music… i know there are Blue Rodeo ones who have few players who do so, but their events are in nicer weather and so are outdoor jams… maybe we can try that one May… there are many in our clan with PA systems to drive it all

so question: who are the non-Lifers at the board? (ie. new or recent fans)

ps) I had hummer/singers in front and behind, and it wasnt just for IYCRMM, lol (I'm sure the writer meant char was mouthing and not singing along …there was an entire row behind Bev Lightfoot Eyers who were late comers and singing, and she just Kept Calm and looked used to that sort of thing… I guess when it's people singing your brother's lyrics, it can't be very aggravating, eh? )

I was NOT 'singing' along..lip synching only. I HATE singers/hummers/mumblers/talkers/ at concerts unless their sorry arses are up onstage.
Singing along to a 'sing along' song is ok - but fer chrissake do NOT sing along to IYCRMM or any other ballads!
I am still pissed.

oh I know… that's why the last line in the article is ironic, lol… i know what she meant! … i agree, i felt partially bad that people wanted to show their pals that they knew all the lyrics (they didnt!) by singing along .. i think there should be designated songs that allow for that and clapping… like CRT section, Sundown, Cotton Jenny or whatever (the Waiting for You encore, fine with me) … but leave the Minstrel of the Dawn and all that stuff… there was even chatter during that song and some others, discussing what album or year the song was off of… discuss that stuff later! …go home and put on the CD and sing and chat!! maybe there are different rules in the Gallery… i like the guy yelling "where are you from?" … Gord is like WTF? i just sang Couchiching… Orillia … Rama… sheesh, lol
