Gordon Lightfoot: Hippie or Hipster?

gordonlightfoot.gifForget about all the new music making its way to Toronto this summer — old classics should be given the same coverage. That’s why Torontoist and Mom went down to Massey Hall last night to catch Gordon Lightfoot’s second concert of the week.
There it was discovered that ageing hippies make for a very rowdy audience, with song suggestions and random comments being shouted to Lightfoot at all moments. He joked throughout the show, and even played a tongue-in-cheek song about Lake Couchiching. Aside from being part of the under-50 minority, Torontoist had a good time and encourages anyone with a thing for folk tunes and Canadian content to grab tickets to tonight or Saturday’s show.
Gordon Lightfoot could be a hipster too: wearing white boots, tight jeans, and a snazzy vest his style is exactly what Brendan Flowers can only dream of looking like.
