The Legend of Gordon Lightfoot
Featuring Leisa Way and the Wayward Wind Band
Spend the evening celebrating a Canadian legend and sing along to such favourites as Sundown, For Loving Me, Early Morning Rain, Canadian Railroad Trilogy, Did She Mention My Name, The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, Black Day in July, If You Could Read My Mind, Carefree Highway, Rainy Day People, Song For a Winter’s Night, Ribbon of Darkness, Alberta Bound, I’m Not Sayin’, Bitter Green, Cotton Jenny, Pussy Willows Cat-Tails and more! Sadly, we lost Gordon Lightfoot this year, but his music will live on forever. Loved by all generations, his truly Canadian stories have touched hearts here and around the world.
A Theatre Collingwood favourite, Leisa Way brings her boundless energy and impressive singing voice back to Collingwood this summer! Accompanied by the astounding musicians and vocalists of the Wayward Wind band, Leisa will take us on a musical journey filled with special stories, facts and anecdotes centered around Canada’s most celebrated songwriter and folk-rock legend.
“Early Morning Rain provides a fun-filled evening of first-rate entertainment by immensely talented musicians – but really, it’s much more than that. It’s a welcome dose of ‘Canadiana’ and an important reminder of Lightfoot’s contributions to this country and the music industry, and of his stature as one of the most talented and prolific songwriters the world has ever seen.”

“They, (the musicians), are so coherent, so in tune with each other that this concert flows and you never want it to stop. The concert goes on, each of the solo performances is taken on by one and the other, including Ms. Way, in a format that is beautifully artistic and keeps up the energy, the stories moving and is fascinating.”
