Gordon Lightfoot: If You Could Read My Mind explores the career, music, and influence of this legendary Canadian singer-composer. With unprecedented access to the artist, the film takes viewers from high school auditoriums in small Ontario towns in the 1950s to the coffee houses of Yorkville and Greenwich Village in the’60s, through Lightfoot’s turbulent, substance-fueled arena shows of the ’70s, and finally to the artist in present day. Featuring interviews with many notable voices in the music industry (listed below) the documentary follows Lightfoot’s evolution from Christian choirboy to troubled troubadour to international star and beloved Canadian icon, Gordon Lightfoot: If You Could Read My Mind is an intimate and emotional examination of the artist’s profound relationship to his music and his Canadian roots.
