The City of Toronto's website (https://www.toronto.ca/explore-enjoy...or-prime-time/) indicates that Gordon will be performing his music from his home and that his performance will take place as part of the evening show from 7 to 8 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday, July 1, 2020.

Here is a link to the bios of Gordon Lightfoot and the other performers on the City of Toronto's website:

Gordon Lightfoot
World-renowned Canadian folk legend Gordon Lightfoot was a genre-defining figure in the folk-pop scene of the 1960s and 1970s. His classic songs, like “Sundown,” “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald” and “If You Could Read My Mind” are indelible on the Canadian music landscape. Lightfoot was awarded the Governor General’s Performing Arts Award – Canada’s highest honour in the performing arts – in 1997, and he was named a Companion of the Order of Canada in 2003. His songs have been recorded by the likes of Elvis Presley, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Barbra Streisand, Eric Clapton and The Tragically Hip.
