Mac Wiseman Sings Gordon Lightfoot
Two legends. On this now-classic 1977 album, Mac Wiseman, one of bluegrass music’s greatest vocalists, takes on the timeless songs of Gordon Lightfoot. Possessing a warm tenor voice and the ability to phrase a song with passion and emotion, Mac Wiseman shines performing Lightfoot’s beloved songs. His renditions of “Sundown” and “Steel Rail Blues” are top-notch. There are also compositions here from the lesser-known corners of the Lightfoot songbook, including “The House You Live In,” which could be mistaken for a bluegrass standard after Wiseman’s treatment.
Mac Wiseman has captivated audiences around the world with his voice, charisma and exhilarating performances. Mac Wiseman Sings Gordon Lightfoot features bluegrass musicians Eddie Adcock, Arthur Smith and Clay Smith.
