Songs For A Winter’s Night: Celebrating The Music of Gordon Lightfoot

Get ready for an unforgettable evening celebrating the music of Canadian troubadour Gordon Lightfoot. Songwriters Nudie and Shane Pendergast will take the stage to perform the iconic songs that have defined generations. From the heartbreaking “If You Could Read My Mind” to the epic “Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald,” the evening promises to be a heartfelt celebration of the man and his songs. From the sweet folk licks of Lightfoot’s early music, to the sultry electric guitar riffs and grooving bass lines of Sundown, lead guitarist Bobby McIsaac and bassist Serge Bernard perfectly capture the spirit of Lightfoot’s musical feel. Join us at the Scott MacAulay Performing Arts Centre for a must-see performance for Lightfoot fans young and old.

Shane Pendergast has folk music in his blood. Hailing from a long lineage of storytellers and musicians in Prince Edward Island, he is keeping the Maritime folk tradition alive with his honest and insightful compositions. From folk festivals across the world to the small halls of PEI, Shane has cemented himself as one of Atlantic Canada’s finest young folk troubadours. His 2021 album ‘Second Wind” won Contemporary Roots Album of the Year at the Music PEI Awards, and his live album “The House Before the Bridge” was nominated for Roots/Traditional Album of the Year at the 2023 ECMA Awards.

An Island sensation for years, Nudie has toured long and far and played in venues of all sizes across North America. Along with club & festival shows in Canada & the United States, Nudie has showcased at the North by Northeast Festival, the Ontario Council of Folk Festivals, the Americana Music Festival in Nashville and the North American Folk Alliance in Memphis, Tennessee. His songs have been featured in CTV television’s Saving Hope as well as the 2021 crime/thriller, A Small Fortune.
