Bruce Cockburn is a Canadian musical legend whose over forty years in the industry and 31 albums have earned him 12 Juno awards, countless fans, and recognition as an Officer of the Order of Canada. His lyrics dance with poetry in one hand and politics in the other, crafting deep questions and iconic melodies for contemporary listeners. The New York Times called him a “virtuoso on guitar” but they were only writing what his fans already knew. Bruce’s extensive repertoire of musical styles and skillfully crafted lyrics have been covered by such diverse artists as Jerry Garcia, Elbow, Chet Atkins, Judy Collins, Barenaked Ladies, Jimmy Buffett, and k.d. Lang. We are excited and honoured to welcome him back to the Summerfolk stage.
