As a child, he sang in church and taught himself guitar. As a young adult, he attended an advanced school of music and eventually made a lifestyle in California singing jingles. He grew tired of using his voice for marketing purposes and didn’t take a liking to California living. He decided to retreat back to his homestead, where he began to develop a deeper relationship with country and folk.
This talented country and folk singer found great inspiration from Bob Dylan, an American singer, songwriter, and poet. Like many others before him, Lightfoot began to craft his work with deeper insight after listening to Dylan’s work.

He cracked some lighthearted jokes about the remodeling plans and voiced that he hoped there would be an elevator put in. As he rolled through his folk songs, he surprised the audience with a symbolic outfit swap after intermission. He arrived on set wearing a red, velvet coat, and swapped it out for a blue one to match the stage lighting once the crowd returned from a break. Gordon Lightfoot said a positive farewell to his favorite venue and paid his respects to the venue and crowd by singing his most popular work.
