You asked and he answered. In part of CBC Music's 'Your Interview', one of Canada's greatest songwriters Gordon Lightfoot sat down to answer various Tweets and Facebook messages. It has been fifty years since his music first charted across our nation and CBC Music also has two exclusive tracks from his upcoming album, 'All Live' available for streaming.
