13-time Juno winner and Canadian Music Hall of Famer Bruce Cockburn will take the Umble Center stage at Goshen College for an intimate Performing Arts Series concert on Tuesday, Sept. 24 at 7:30 p.m.
Ottawa-born Cockburn is touted as one of the most creative and prolific recording artists. Since his self-titled debut album in 1970, the singer-songwriter has produced a steady stream of acclaimed albums. His music features a wide range of styles, from folk to jazz-influenced rock. Lyrical topics cover topics such as human rights, environmental issues, politics and Christianity.
“My job,” Cockburn says, “is to try and trap the spirit of things in the scratches of pen on paper and the pulling of notes out of metal.”
Cockburn’s 33 albums have sold over 7 million copies worldwide, and he is revered as one of the most important songwriters of his generation. Top singles include “Wondering Where the Lions Are,” “Lovers in a Dangerous Time,” and “If I Had a Rocket Launcher.” His guitar playing, both acoustic and electric, has placed him in the company of the world’s top instrumentalists.
More than forty years after embarking on his singer-songwriting career, Cockburn continues to capture the essence of the human experience in song.
