Gordon Lightfoot Background
Lightfoot was raised in Ontario, Canada, where his mother quickly discovered his incredible musical talents. With her encouragement,
Lightfoot became an extraordinarily good performer at a very young age. His first public performance took place in the fourth
grade, when he performed "Too Ra Loo Ra Loo Ral" over the school's speaker system. From then on, nobody could quash Lightfoot's
love for performing. He performed in the church choir, at school, in local operettas, and even on local radio stations. By
the time he was in high school, his community was well aware of his phenomenal talents. But it was during this pivotal time
in Lightfoot's life that he started defining his own unique sound, which turned out to be a blend of folk and rock. Even though
he found a great passion for folk music, that didn't stop him from exploring other genres, such as jazz. Ultimately, though,
Lightfoot is first and foremost known as a folk artist.
