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.

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. Cockburn has enjoyed an illustrious career shaped by politics, spirituality and musical diversity. His remarkable journey has seen him embrace folk, jazz, rock and world beat styles while traveling to such far-flung places as Guatemala, Mali, Mozambique and Nepal, and writing memorable songs about his ever-expanding world of wonders. “My job,” Cockburn explains, “is to try and trap the spirit of things in the scratches of pen on paper and the pulling of notes out of metal.”

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 know maybe ever the 2020’s.
