Fish Creek, Wis. (September 20, 2022) – On Thursday, September 22, at 7 p.m., songwriting legend Gordon Lightfoot will perform on the Door Community Auditorium (DCA) Main Stage. Jake Wildhorn will open the show. Lightfoot’s performance is presented in partnership with Door County Maritime Museum.
After more than 50 active years of hit songwriting, and international album sales well into the multi-millions, it’s safe to say that Gordon Lightfoot resides near the top of the list of all-time great songwriters in the English language. His vast and varied catalog of songs (which includes hits like “Early Morning Rain,” “If You Could Read My Mind,” “Sundown,” “For Lovin’ Me,” “The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald,” and “Rainy Day People”) has led to acclaim from fans and peers alike.
Kris Kristofferson said, “Gordon Lightfoot has created some of the most beautiful and lasting music of our time.” And Bob Dylan agreed, saying, “I can’t think of any Gordon Lightfoot song I don’t like. Every time I hear a song of his, I wish it would last forever.”
Opening the show will be Jake Wildhorn, a singer-songwriter whose music blends acoustic nuance with contemporary pop energy. From beat-heavy takedowns of internet culture to stripped-back guitar ballads, Jake showcases grit and light riffs in his rich vocals. His first self-titled EP Jake Wildhorn and most recent single “Sleeping with Fire” are available streaming on all platforms.
Gordon Lightfoot’s performance is made possible with support from underwriting sponsors Donald & Carol Kress, presenting sponsors Lori & David Nicholas, major sponsors EH Barker and Margaret & Dale West; and supporting sponsors The Cordon Family Foundation and The James & Nancy Huebner Charitable Foundation.
