Writing Gordon Lightfoot
The Man, the Music, and the World in 1972Book - 2011
A brilliantly original look at the folk-rock legend Gordon Lightfoot and the momentous week in 1972 that culminated in the Mariposa Folk Festival. Dave Bidini explores the remarkable week leading up to Mariposa and the series of events that will transform Canada politically, psychologically and musically. Through a series of letters, Bidini addresses Lightfoot directly, questioning him, imagining his life and weaving together a fascinating portrait of the musician at the top of his game.
