Hey, folks. We are putting the final details on something special for Canada Day, but since the lovely and talented Lana Gay was kind enough to have us on CBC3 today to talk about the project, we thought it made sense to release a trailer of sorts.

 

Basically, we begged and pleaded with some of our favorite artists and cobbled together a massive tribute to the man, the icon, Gordon Lightfoot. Tomorrow we will put the whole kit and kaboodle online for any music lover to grab for free, but to whet your appetite here are four tracks from the compilation. It’s our way of saying thanks to Gordon for years of terrific music, and to you, for reading herohill.

 

Enjoy and please, spread the word. With over thirty bands involved, this is bigger than anything we’ve ever done. It features Polaris long-listers, long time hill favs and new acts that we will be posting on soon.
