Fresh from a four-continent tour that saw her play high-energy concerts across the United States, Canada, Japan, Australia and the United Kingdom, culminating in a performance at Toronto’s historic Massey Hall, acclaimed Canadian rocker Terra Lightfoot has announced a new run of North American live dates for early 2018. With her recently released album New Mistakes (Sonic Unyon), Lightfoot offers up something rare: the kind of genuine document that can only come from a road-tested breed of songwriter and performer. Shot through with the guitarist-vocalist’s powerful, bluesy soul, vivid lyrics and ferocious six-string virtuosity, it’s an unforgettable outing.
From the ground-shaking stomp of “Paradise” and wild-eyed energy of “Pinball King” that open the set to the psychedelic, gospel-tinged album closer “Lonesome Eyes,” Lightfoot’s third record distills her masterful talent to its electrifying essence. It’s her hungriest and most raw album to date.
Lightfoot will kick off 2018 with hometown dates backed by the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra strings, and wrap up this run with special guest, Australian songwriter William Crighton.
