Default Lightfoot Receives Lifetime Achievement Award from Folk Alliance International

Gordon Lightfoot recently received Folk Alliance International's Elaine Weissman Lifetime Achievement Award for 2021 in the category of Living Artist: https://folk.org/programs/ifmas/lifetime-achievement/.

Past recipients of the Lifetime Achievement Award in that category include Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, and Peter, Paul & Mary.

According to Folk Alliance International, "the Elaine Weissman Lifetime Achievement Awards are presented each year to honor the cultural impact of legendary folk music figures. As part of the award process, Folk Alliance International produces a short commentary to commemorate these great artists and to provide a resource to the community sharing the rich history and lasting cultural influence of folk music": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_u0VL8QxYa8.


The narrator of Folk Alliance International's 9-minute commentary on Gordon Lightfoot is Aengus Finnan. Finnan wrote and recorded the song "Lightfoot", which was released in 2003: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EpP7ccaM_rc.
