W5's Lloyd Robertson sits down for a rare interview with singer-songwriter and Canadian music icon Gordon Lightfoot, who at the age of 79 is still on the road touring. From his first Canadian hit in 1962 to the final concert at Massey Hall in 2018 before it closes for renovations, Lightfoot has toured continuously and has become known as Canada's troubador. He had a string of gold and platinum albums in the 70's and 80's, he is in the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, and is a Governor General's Award winner. His songs have been recorded by scores of famous Canadian and international musicians, from Ian and Sylvia to Elvis Presley. His family and friends know him for his unselfish generosity, fairness and genuine loyalty. In his home town of Orillia, ON, two statues honour their famous national music treasure.
