Gordon Lightfoot EP to be recorded...

During my years of performing as a solo act I have sung a variety of songs by one of my major influences - Gordon Lightfoot.

He is 81 this year and still touring and yet many people have often asked what other songs has he written etc...

I will be recording 5 lesser known Lightfoot songs that I sing on and off in my set. They will be stripped down recordings - just me on vocal and guitar and a Bass - just as they would be heard live.

The EP will be available at gigs to hopefully enthuse you about Lightfoot and will include guidance on what to listen to in his long catalogue of music. I'll keep you posted.
