Canadian musical legend who captures, in song, the essence of the human experience – while fiercely striving to make it better.
Is it really fifty years ago that Bruce Cockburn’s first album came out?
Indeed, it is. His eponymous titled album which included “Going to The Country” and “Musical Friends” was released on April 7, 1970. Coincidently it was also the first album released by True North records. TN 1 was its catalogue number.
Although mostly recorded in late 1969, the first album hit the stores and airwaves in 1970 and started the long long journey that continues to this day.
Bruce has now released 34 albums and has played thousands of concerts around the world, something that he continues to do to this day.
Many of Bruce’s songs have been covered by various artists including Jimmy Buffet, kd Lang, Barenaked Ladies, Hawksley Workman, Jerry Garcia, Anne Murray, Elbow, Mary Balin, Judy Collins, Chet Atkins, The Rankin Family, Blackie & The Rodeo Kings, and on and on.
The 50th Anniversary Shows will have Bruce doing songs from each decade that he’s been making records in: 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, 2000’s, 2010’s and who knows maybe even the 2020’s.
