Gordon Meredith Lightfoot, CC, OOnt
November 17, 1938 – May 1, 2023
Words on a website would not begin to scratch the surface of what Gordon’s songwrting and musicianship meant, and will forever mean: to the Hugh’s Room Live community of artists and audiences, to Canada, and to the world. He told our stories, universal stories, about our land, our people and ourselves. We ask that you share your stories about Gordon. Performances, encounters or just what his music and songs meant to you. We will assemble them and share them here on the Hugh’s Room Live website and other platforms over the coming weeks. Please email us at email@example.com.
The Hugh’s Room Live Community
Hugh’s Room Live is committed to enlarging its focus from a performance venue to a music-focussed community centre, and to undertake an inclusive approach to the creation of facilities and programming in our new space.
Stay tuned to this space in the coming months for video and audio content from our extensive archive of performances. Thanks to the support of Canada Council for the Arts and their Digital Now program we’ll also be developing new content featuring iconic members of the HRL music community.
