Early Morning Rain:
The Songs of Gordon Lightfoot
Early Morning Rain is a wander through the wonderfully crafted songs of one of Canada’s greatest songwriters, presented by musicians perfectly suited for the journey: John McLachlan (acoustic guitar, vocals) and Marc Atkinson (lead guitar, mandolin).
John has chosen songs from Lightfoot’s first ten, prolific years and lovingly arranged them in ways that make them familiar to anyone who followed his music, but also fresh for those who have never heard them before.
The concert unfolds with personal anecdotes and stories behind the songs as well as the role the music played in John McLachlan’s early musical development. This is no “tribute” show but rather a musical love letter with new arrangements to familiar classics.
