Gordon Lightfoot at Chautauqua 7-24-09

Gordon Lightfoot appeared Friday July 24 at the Chautauqua Institution Amphitheater before a very enthusiastic audience. It was the first appearence here for the renowned singer-songwriter since 1993 and third overall. Lightfoot, who is very soft-spoken, did comment on his appreciation of the institution and told a story of how an all night session with Jerry Jeff Walker inspired one of his tunes (Hang Dog Hotel Room). At age 70, Lightfoot's baritone delivery may not be as strong as it once was. But there is no question that he and his excellent band have one of the unique sounds and styles in all of music. They made for a memorable evening of entertainment for one and all.
