Default Lightfoot at the Cambridge Club - video

Gordon Lightfoot Performance 2013

What would life be without music?

I thank my mother, from the bottom of my heart, for putting in music lessons when I was young. I never really appreciated it until later in life.

I gave it up in my teens but swiftly came back to it later in life. It has attributed to various successes in my life including being able to type fast and have an aptitude at math (though I don’t have the patience for it).

But it also gave me an appreciation for all things beautiful. Something that I feel us Torontonians who are so wrapped up in our “New York Minute” lifestyle forget to notice.

Tonight I had the pleasure of seeing Gordon Lightfoot play live at The Cambridge Club. Funnily enough, I have a book from the 70s sitting on my piano that I play from time to time (re: Elton John). I once tried playing “If You Could Read My Mind,” and have a very tough time grasping its technique.

Playing Lightfoot is all in his technique. It’s a style I am not used to, and it’s a masterful one at that. His music was so touching, and he sings with such heart. Gordon Lighfoot’s lyrics are so deep and meaningful. It was absolutely surreal seeing a living legend play live in front of my very eyes.

Check out the video above!

Char, just clicked on both Joseph Morris links in first post, the page comes up with OK but click on the video and "This video is private" comes up. Even though the author invites us to check out the video above. Very odd.

Not really a post worth keeping with the video not accessible.

I tweeted Joseph Morris and it seems the video infringed the Folk Cubs copyright.

The athletic club used to have photos from another time he performed for the members but they are no available anymore..So they are probably just respecting the privacy of those in the audience and Gordon too...
