Playlist for May 6 Concert: "50 Years on the Carefree Highway Tour"



May 6 concert at Devos Performance Center in Grand Rapids, MI.

 It was a great time Monday night at the 50 Years on the Carefree Highway concert, and as always it's exciting to be at a Gordon Lightfoot performance. He and the band sounded great, and the hall was packed with loyal fans who were lucky to hear a good mix of both older and newer songs, many of which I mentioned in my 50 Days blogs. We hummed and sang along, and at one point a group finished a song for him. Probably happens often. I couldn't even begin to say which ones were my favorites but the highlights of any GL concert are always The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald and If You Could Read My Mind. We heard both. I also especially enjoyed Don Quixote, I'd Rather Press On, Beautiful and The Watchman's Gone.

Thank you Gordon Lightfoot for your music, your songs, and the 50 years you've been writing and singing for us on the Carefree Highway.

Thank you for your sweet reply in the MMRWA forum! So great that you got to see Gordon Lightfoot in concert - Sundown was always one of my favorites. And some of those 70's artists sure still have it! We saw John Fogerty (Creedence Clearwater Revival) in concert a few years ago and for a man nearly 70 years old, he sounded the same as the day they recorded "Up Around The Bend." :)

I always loved CCR, too! Nothing like those bands and singers from the 60s and 70s. I'm so glad that many of them are still touring and performing for us.
