Just had a listen to a few of the Carter Lancaster tracks on the net. WOW. Listening to him play makes be excited about hearing him play with the Lightfoot tunes. My hope is that he puts some of himself into the interpretations. Just great. No one can replace any of the great musicians that have gone to the big GIG in the sky.

But I look forward to hearing the music I love from this new player.

Default Found some info on Carter Lancaster

Yes Terry will be greatly missed. It seems like Gordon has made a very capable choice
in Mr. Lancaster. Found this info on a blogspot:

Kevin


Carter Lancaster

Name: Carter Lancaster
Born: mid 1950's (Ontario, Canada)

Profile: A versatile guitarist, performer and composer, he is one of those rare musicians whose expertise and virtuosity transcend issues of style. His unique musical vision has led him to master Jazz, Bluegrass and modern acoustic guitar styles, in a manner that allows each style to complement the others without sacrificing any of their respective nuances. A performer with over 30 years experience, and can be seen working as a solo artist, with jazz and folk duos, trios, or quartets, and occasionally with orchestras.

History: Lancaster was raised in a family who loved music, his father was a jazz pianist - and taught him the importance of understanding scales, chord theory, and harmony. Young Lancaster learned to read music at an early age. He started playing acoustic guitar at the age of 11 on a 'Saturn' acoustic guitar (at the time it cost him $12) which he still owns. He took private lessons for 5 years and gradually switched over to an Aria semi acoustic guitar.

By the time Lancaster was 13, he purchased a Gibson ES 335 which was his main guitar for years. He then formed his first band called "Velvet Fog", which covered mostly Jimi Hendrix songs. In his early 20's, he started playing more acoustic guitar and purchased a Martin M-36 acoustic guitar that he used for Bluegrass. It was at this period of time he started writing his own music.

Though Lancaster started by playing the guitar, he began studying the harp guitar (a rare vintage instrument with 6 treble and 5 or 6 contra-basses), after he heard a Stephan Bennett album. He was intrigued with the sounds from this amazing instrument and bought 2 Dyer Symphony Harp guitars that are about a hundred years old.

Lancaster was noticed in the music community after he performed one of his original compositions 'Widow Walk' at the Harp Guitar Gathering in Williamsburg, Virginia. But, he is probably known best for his fluid jazz electric chord-melody style and his standard and open tuning acoustic compositions, his ability to incorporate a variety of harmonic and 2-handed tapping techniques, while maintaining a strong melody line and percussive rhythm are sure to grab any listenerís attention.

In 2009, Lancaster released his second solo album called 'Case Closed'. The album is a compilation of original pieces performed solo on 6 string acoustic and Harp guitar. Currently, he is writing more music which he hopes to begin recording soon for his next album.

Influences: Joe Pass, Lenny Breau, Bruce Cockburn and Stephen Bennett

Axology: 2 Dyer Symphony Harp Guitars, Holloway Harp Guitar, Marc Beneteau Concert standard, Breedlove Performance Focus, Fender Stratocaster, Gibson ES-335, Martin M-36 guitar and Saturn acoustic guitar

Signature song(s): Blue - Carter Lancaster (Case Closed, 2009) and Widow Walk - Carter Lancaster (Case Closed, 2009)

"When I listened to Carterís CD, I became more and more annoyed as I realized that he had written some tunes that I should have. He must be stopped". - Stephen Bennett

What do you mean "When Barry Passed"? Barry is still with us, isn't he? Is there something I don't know?

I hope he plays a normal guitar on stage with Gord, I just don't think those harp guitars fit the folkmaster's image.

I tend to think Gordon will not do the 'empty stool' thing onstage. It's a wonderful thought, though.

Even though it is such a great loss, I think he would not do this out of respect for his new guitarist.

Speculating..........Since Lightfoot always introduces the band members, I can see 2 ways :

"And on lead guitar, our newest member Carter Lancaster"

and leave it at that. Or.........

the above, PLUS a mention of Clements' passing.

June 11, 2008 Mountainteer Park, Chester West Virginia.
Gordon never said a word on stage and Terry never said anything after the show as we briefly spoke about cigars. I was unaware at the time as he (Red) had just passed and the news was not public to my knowledge.
DSR was there and may have insight as she spoke to the band afterward.

The persson who would try to fill Terry's shoes would also have to be someone who would have to fit in as if they had been ther since the start, and that may well be a hard thing to do.
