One of Canada’s most famed and prolific artists is coming to Victoria on a tour to support his latest release, Rarities.
Rarities is a collection of some of Bruce Cockburn’s B-sides and even songs that never saw the light of day over his career of more than 50 years.
Cockburn is an active musician, activist and author who has sold more than nine million records throughout his career.
“My job is to try and trap the spirit of things in the scratches of pen on paper and the pulling of notes out of metal,” said Cockburn in a statement about his career.
The Ottawa born songwriter’s accolades include being a member of both the Canadian Songwriter and Canadian Music Hall of Fame, a winner of Folk Alliance’s People’s Voice Award as well 13 Juno Awards from more than 30 nominations.
