Gordon Lightfoot

When sensitive singer-songwriters ruled AM pop stations in the early 1970s, Gordon Lightfoot was in the uppermost tier, right alongside Harry Chapin and James Taylor. The Canadian musician scored his first U.S. hit with the ballad “If You Could Read My Mind,” but he’d been a consistent radio presence in his native country for nearly a decade prior; successful international singles like the story-song “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald” and the irrepressibly catchy “Sundown” soon followed. Though he released a new tune titled “Plans of My Own” late last year, he hasn’t released a collection of original studio material since 2004’s Harmony, so expect to hear a classics-heavy set when the 78-year-old Lightfoot hits the Fox on Sunday.
