Rocking out to a childhood dream

Terra Lightfoot performs Pynelogs Thursday, November 7th

Terra Lightfoot always wanted to grow up to play rock and roll.

With three albums out and another on the way, her delight in the electric guitar has only increased, and she’s convinced her audiences can sense the joy radiating from her when she gets to rock out.

“When I was a kid, if I heard electric guitar on the radio I would get so excited,” she said. “I still have those singer-songwriter songs that are the more tenderhearted kind of numbers, but for me what excites me is playing the electric guitar and turning it up to 10.”

She will crank the volume when she comes to the Valley to perform with her rock trio.

“We give it everything we have on stage. It’s a real rock show,” she said. “It’s the most rewarding life in the world. I couldn’t ask for a better lot in life.”

While she’s performed across North America and in Japan and Australia, Ms. Lightfoot is particularly keen on visiting the Valley.

“It’s really exciting for me to be able to actually play and stay in the mountains because that’s always my favourite part of being on the road in Canada. I love the mountains. They’re so grounding, so beautiful,” she said. “I’m so jazzed, and I hope that I can come back to Invermere again and again and again.”

Ms. Lightfoot plans to go out hiking and adventuring during her stay and finds much of her inspiration in nature as well as in her own life experiences and stories from her loved ones.

“Basically all my music comes straight from the heart so that’s what you’re going to see and hear and feel at the show,” she said. “Music is a very cathartic and therapeutic thing for me … We definitely believe in the healing power of rock and roll.”

Ms. Lightfoot will play a mix of her songs at her Invermere show along with a surprise bag of cover songs that fans requested.

She will be performing at Pynelogs Art Gallery and Cultural Centre on Thursday, November 7th.

Tickets are $25 and can be purchased at www.columbiavalleyarts.com.
