CLASSIC LIGHTFOOT LIVE ©
John Stinson is a proud Canadian musician who's been performing
in the Toronto area for over 30 years. One constant throughout the ever-changing soundtrack
of the years, was the music of Gordon Lightfoot.
In 1988 John moved to Aurora. There, he became neighbours with Lightfoot's lead guitarists of the last five decades. "Spending time with Red Shea and Terry Clements brought me even closer to understanding the details and nuances of Lightfoot's music. To me, Lightfoot's music really does reflect what it means to be Canadian. His lyrics tell stories; his stories, our stories, Canadian stories. They reach out and touch audiences in deep emotional ways."
Since 2009, John has been dedicated to recreating his favourite music in a tribute show, featuring highlights from Lightfoot's studio albums from the 1966-78 era. He performs with a very impressive supporting cast of musicians. Each of them has been influenced by Lightfoot's music and the passion comes through in every performance!
