"Whispers of the North" -- The GORDON LIGHTFOOT Tribute is a five-piece band that replicates the songs, styles and moods of the Canadian songer-songwriter's best!
Be ready for a visual, acoustic trip from the Great Lakes to the Canadian Rockies; through the pains of lost loves and haunting melodies.
The audience will hear the best known tunes from Lightfoot's catalogue, and other songs typical of a Lightfoot concert. The play-list includes such standards as "If You Could Read My Mind," "Canadian Railroad Trilogy," "Sundown," "Carefree Highway" and "Rainy Day People." Plus, of course, "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald."
"I think you have to play those big songs," notes Mike Fornes, who portrays Lightfoot, "especially the shipwreck song. It happened less than 100 miles from where we live and anybody here who has ever heard that song identifies it with storms they have seen on the lakes and what happened to those guys that horrible night. Yes, we'll certainly play it, but there will be some surprises too – some great music Gord wrote that I think people will really enjoy."
The band – a mixture of eclectic musicians comprising backgrounds in blues, jazz, rock'n'roll and sacred music -- has been assembled to portray the same roles as Lightfoot's own backing musicians, an element to the show that audiences find to be true to the original recordings.
Lead guitarist Todd Golnick will play the acoustic and electric melody lines that caused millions of radio listeners to hum along with Lightfoot's chart-topping hits of the 1970s and 1980s. Keyboard wizard George Krawczyk supplies the orchestral sounds and piano music for the show's 25-song repertoire. Bassist John Riemer and drummer/percussionist Joe Kwiatkowski have charge of the beat and special effects score.
From the authentic instruments to the classic sounds and the stage set, your audience will find a remarkable resemblance to a live concert by GORDON LIGHTFOOT. Full houses at theaters and other concert venues testify to the popularity of this tribute to the Canadian icon.
A great show for couples, families and pop culture enthusiasts of all ages!
