Default JENNINGS in GUELPH to talk about his book, LIGHTFOOT

https://fgpl.ca
We are very pleased to announce a new addition to the event “Jennings on Lightfoot” which happens on Monday November 27 in the downtown library. Renowned jazz singer Brenda Lewis has joined the event.

Lewis will lead a conversation with Jennings about the man behind the Canadian Railroad Trilogy and many other classic Canadian folk songs.

Nicholas Jennings is the author of the new and definitive biography of Gordon Lightfoot. He is a music journalist writing for Maclean’s magazine from 1980 to 2000.

Lewis is a publicist, professional musician and human rights advocate. For over two decades, she has been singing professionally, first as a folk/blues vocalist, then for most her career as a jazz vocalist, performing with some of Canada’s finest jazz musicians. She was the successful panelist at Guelph Reads 2016 with her spirited defense of Flint and Feather, a biography of poet Pauline Johnson.

Between them, Jennings and Lewis have extensive experience in different aspects of the music business, reportage and performance. Pairing them together will bring added depth and intimacy to the discussion about Gordon Lightfoot.

Doors open in the downtown library at 6:30pm with the conversation beginning at 7:00pm.

“Jennings on Lightfoot” is presented by the Friends of the Guelph Public Library in partnership with The Bookshelf, Guelph’s independent downtown book store.

Seats can be reserved through Eventbright.
