With the passing of Pete Seeger last week we were reminded again of the lineage that exists within music.

Seeger was a major inspiration to the crop of musicians who came to define folk music.

One of these impressionable artists is Toronto's Gordon Lightfoot who has been writing and performing for nearly 40 years.

I had a chance to sit down with Gordon prior to his gig at the Fox Tucson Theatre on Feb. 7 to discuss overcoming adversity, song writing and Bobby Kennedy.
