Gordon Lightfoot

Inducted in 1986

If Gordon Lightfoot had written no other songs besides the majestic “Canadian Railroad Trilogy,” his place in the Canadian Music Hall of Fame would still be assured. Few performers have so eloquently captured the adventure, hardship, tragedy and elation of nation building.

Fewer still have impacted and inspired multiple generations of listeners and would-be musicians while helping to define the very essence and sound of folk music across the decades.
