Gordon Lightfoot Concert Review, Austin, TX, June 21, 2016

leave a comment »

Gordon Lightfoot will be 78 later this year.  He still tours.  He plays 2 sets and stands the whole time.  That’s pretty awesome.

Given his age, his voice has deteriorated a lot and it’s only in a few spots here and there that you can hear his golden voice from the 70s.  He’s much higher-pitched and weaker nowadays but he gets it done and does it without a teleprompter which I think is even more impressive.  His guitar playing is still pretty good, too.

He seems like quite a personable guy.  Doing some quick research online, it looks like he just got married (again) 2 years ago to the 55 year old actress Kim Hasse.

It was a good show overall and was comparable to the show I saw 2 years ago.  He played pretty much everything one would want to hear at his shows and it brought back great memories of being a kid listening to AM gold with my Mom.
