Singer-songwriter Gordon Lightfoot will be honoured by some of Winnipeg’s finest musicians at the West End Cultural Centre to mark his 75th birthday.
Carefree Highway — A Winnipeg Tribute to Gordon Lightfoot is set for Friday, December 6.
Performances range from Scott Nolan to Vanessa Kuzina (Oh My Darling) to Red Moon Road to Rusty Matyas (Imaginary Cities). A house band consisting of Lloyd Peterson (The Cheer, The Dust Poets), Damon Mitchell (The New Meanies, Nathan) & Bruce Jacobs (Kenny Shields, The Rankin Family) will accompany the rotating cast of talent throughout the night.
While you’ll certainly hear some of Gordon’s hits, song selections are being steered towards some of his lesser-known gems.
Tickets are on sale now for $22 through the WECC, Ticketmaster, Winnipeg Folk Festival Music Store and Music Trader. Or buy them at the door for $27.
