Re: HOT DOCS-Lightfoot doc.-interviews/photos/articles-Apr-2019-AND TV viewing info

"Before international fame, in 1967, he actually wrote and performed a piece called “The Tale of Canada” for the country’s 100th anniversary."

Re: pics from tv show-HOTEL-Jan.1988

Looking at those pictures again after a few years, I notice he's playing his McGlincy guitar. Gord had a dread made and I believe Terry C. had a 000 made with the same decorations.
