Default Ridgefield, Connecticut Nov. 11, 2015

Gordon Lightfoot's voice was extremely good, at least compared to the July appearance in Manhattan. He wished the crowd a good Veteran's Day. He mentioned that he was going to perform "Drink Yer Glasses Empty" as sort of a tribute to Veteran's Day, and mentioned his Canadian backgroiund.

When he sang "Drink Yer Glasses Empty" he mentioned writing it in conjunction with Desert Storm, and I suppose analogizing it to being "back in '39 when (he) was one year old." That of course was a few months after the start of World War II. A nice touch.I suppose one of things I like about Gord is that he seems to be a history buff; just like I am.

Anyway, here's Ridgefield setlist for November 11, 2015.

1. Sweet Guinneviere
2. Did She Mention my Name
3. Waiting for you
4. Never Too Close
5. 14 Karat Gold

7. Painter Passing Through
8. Rainy Day People
9. Shadows
10. Beautiful
11. The Watchman's Gone (from Sundown)
12. Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald
13. Carefree Highway
INTERMISSION
14. Drink Yer Glasses Empty
15. Now and Then
16. Ribbon of Darkness
17. Sundown
18. Pony Man
19. I'd Rather Press On
20. Let it Ride
21. If You Could Read My Mind
22. Restless
23. Baby Step Back
24. Early Morning' Rain
ENCORE
25. Cold on the Shoulder

RICK: and appropriately last nite, Gordon opened the second set with `Drink Yer Glasses Empty`, to remind us.

RICK: Now, on November 11, our thoughts are about veterans while we do our concert at the Ridgefield Playhouse here in western Connecticut, where we last appeared in June 2010. This is a beautiful part of the country.

This place does not allow pictures so Ricks stage picture from the side is the only performance picture. Sold out show and it was a good one.
