Canadian-born singer Gordon Lightfoot will replace Neil Young & Crazy Horse at the Greenbelt Harvest Picnic on Aug. 31 at the Christie Lake Conservation Area in Dundas, Ontario, according to CBC Hamilton.

Lightfoot, 74, was brought in to replace Young after Crazy Horse’s guitarist Frank Sampedro injured his hand. The band has cancelled the North American leg of its current tour, including a headlining spot at the Ottawa Folk Festival, CBC reported.

Many have bemoaned the fact that they bought tickets to the picnic just to see Young and Crazy Horse. The organizers have offered a partial discount to ticketholders after the band pulled out of the show.

Organizers are offering a $40 refund. The new ticket price is $99.50.

“Ticket buyers who purchased through TicketMaster will be contacted by TicketMaster,” Gauthier said. “Ticket buyers who purchased from consignment locations, can pick up their refund beginning Saturday Aug. 24 at 10 a.m.”

““Fort McMurray is a wasteland,” Young said. “The fuel’s all over, the fumes everywhere – you can smell it when you get to town. The closest place to Fort McMurray that is doing the tar sands work is 25 or 30 miles out of town and you can taste it when you get to Fort McMurray,” he said. “People are sick. People are dying of cancer because of this. All the First Nations people up there are threatened by this.””
