Bruce Cockburn

Artist Description

Folk, Rock

Ottawa, Ontario

One of Canada’s finest artists makes his long awaited Harvest debut! Bruce Cockburn has enjoyed an illustrious career shaped by politics, spirituality and musical diversity. His remarkable journey has seen him embrace folk, jazz, rock and worldbeat styles, while earning high praise as an exceptional songwriter and a revered guitarist. Cockburn’s songs of romance, protest and spiritual discovery are among the best to have emerged from Canada, while his guitar playing, both acoustic and electric, has placed him in the company of the world’s top instrumentalists. Throughout his career, Cockburn has deftly captured the joy, pain, fear and faith of human experience in song, expressing a tough, yet hopeful stance: to kick at the darkness till it bleeds daylight. For his many achievements, the Ottawa-born artist has been honoured with twelve Junos and a Governor General’s Award, been inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, and made an Officer of the Order of Canada. Catch this national icon on Harvest Friday night!
