Terra Lightfoot James St. North, Hamilton ON, September 14
Published Sep 15, 2014More local talent was celebrated on the final day of Supercrawl with singer/songwriter Terra Lightfoot delivering a well-rounded set of original material. Lightfoot (no relation to Gordon) has been recognized within Canada's folk community for her powerful, commanding vocals, and Sunday's performance was an excellent indication of how true these statements are, as she kept the audience enraptured with her splendid tone and vocal control through moments both powerful and delicate.
With Lightfoot sporting a different guitar for every occasion (and fighting through instances where her guitar cable wouldn't quite stay plugged in), her band followed her lead through a set of both gritty folk-rock tunes and lighter, melancholic fare. The power never wavered, with Lightfoot and her band riding the energy straight through to the end of their afternoon set. They closed with an inspiring cover of traditional American folk song "Where Did You Sleep Last Night."
