McLachlan Sings Lightfoot
This somewhat eclectic collection of songs is drawn from Gordon Lightfoot’s vast repertoire. Many are well-known, and some a little obscure, yet, they are all gems in their own way.
Time is his muse where the songs express the honest feelings of the characters, real or fictional, who all face the blunt truth of time, and how it can leave regret, joy, sadness, or peace.
Wind & Bones
The album is inhabited by characters from today and yesterday who are out to find the illusive “somewhere,” to arrive at it somehow; to prove something by getting there.
Call it Home
Inspired by his home on Hornby Island, BC, the songs range from the first ferry service and its captain, to a poignant memory of his dad’s 8mm home movies from the 60s. Its themes are personal and universal.
