The Legacy of Lightfoot was born out of an enduring respect and reverence for the iconic music of Gordon Lightfoot. Take a journey through one of the deepest and most prolific catalogues of songs ever written. Not only was Gordon Lightfoot one of the most skilled songwriters of his generation, but he had the voice and charisma to match. The musicians who have come together to celebrate The Legacy of Lightfoot combine their decades of experience as performers and songwriters to give a meaningful and engaging performance of his enduring catalogue of music. From his days playing the coffee houses in the 1960’s to the mega hits of the 70’s and all the way up to the beautiful music written in his later years, The Legacy of Lightfoot shines a light on the entirety of Gordon’s masterful career.
Following the graceful passing of Gordon Lightfoot in May 2023 musicians Oliver Swain & Dylan Stone collaborated to organize a concert to celebrate Gordon’s music and life. Swain & Stone are two of British Columbia’s greatly accomplished and experiened songwriters and performers. In the course of their storied careers they have played headlining concerts at Canada’s biggest music festivals and between them they share numerous accolades and awards including award wins and nominations from the Juno’s, Western Canadian Music Awards and Canadian Folk Music Awards. It was a natural fit that these two lifelong career folk-music troubadours work together to give Gordon’s music its proper encore. They surrounded themselves with a talented cast of supporting musicians to form The Legacy and Lightfoot and quickly found an over whelming response to their show. What started as a humble celebration of Lightfoot’s music has now been elevated to a full touring theatre production that is connecting to large audiences and giving the spirit and legacy of Lightfoot’s music new life & longevity.
