|| Terra Lightfoot
March 9 & 10, 2018
“A Canadian songwriting legend in the making” – CBC Music
“Lightfoot’s most accomplished music yet” – PopMatters
“Perfectly suited for stadium-sized crowds” – Exclaim!
With her bold new album New Mistakes, Terra Lightfoot offers up something rare: the kind of genuine document that can only come from a road-tested breed of songwriter and performer. Shot through with the guitarist-vocalist’s powerful, bluesy soul, vivid lyrics and ferocious six-string virtuosity, it’s an unforgettable outing. From the ground-shaking stomp of “Paradise” and wild-eyed energy of “Pinball King” that open the set to the psychedelic, gospel-tinged album closer “Lonesome Eyes,” the steeltown native’s third record distills her masterful talent to its electrifying essence. Built around Lightfoot’s killer live band — Maury LaFoy (bass), Joel Haynes (drums) and Jeff Heisholt (keyboards) — the session impresses on all counts. It’s Lightfoot’s hungriest and most raw album to date, and she will be supporting it with worldwide touring in 2017-2018.
The LIVELab is pleased to welcome Terra Lightfoot and her band for two live shows on March 9 & 10, 2018. In a special collaboration, Terra will be joined by instrumentalists from the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra.
