“Voices Rising” Online Benefit Concert for Mozambique

6 June 2021 –
Bruce is participating in this benefit concert on June 19, 2021.

Voices Rising - Gettin' Higher Choir - benefit for Mozambique

The Gettin’ Higher Choir is delighted to announce that their next online benefit concert will take place June 19 at 7pm PDT, and will feature renowned songwriter, guitarist, compassionate humanitarian and activist, Bruce Cockburn. Also, for the first time, we will welcome collaboration with musicians from the Caia district of Mozambique, for this our 23rd annual concert to support development projects in that region.

The event will feature recorded messages and musical performances by guest artists. The GHC will present “virtual choir” videos of songs celebrating our vital bonds to one another, near and far, and to the earth we share. This season’s uplifting songs come from South Africa, from classic rock, and from current songwriters including local star, Chris Frye of The Bills.

Tickets: To attend the concert on Zoom, click this link to register, make sure you have Zoom installed on your device, and watch for an update email on the day of the concert. Or watch the full concert on YouTube Live, or during the week after, at this YouTube link. We have a limit of 1000 participants on Zoom, so if that is full when you connect, please use the YouTube Live link.

Instead of buying tickets, on or before June 19, please make a donation to The Caia Connection through Canada Helps. This will support our long-standing development projects in Mozambique, including village schools, scholarship programs for nursing and agriculture students, distance learning, food security and water access, and an award-winning valimba music program.

FOUR NEW SONGS

5 May 2021 – Update!!!
Listen to the Four New Songs!
(click through)


Bruce Cockburn Four New Songs SFL

A few years ago I found myself attending a worship service at San Francisco Lighthouse. For the preceding couple of decades I had been operating on the assumption that the formal church and I had grown apart, so in a way it was a surprise to be there and feel as though it was where I was meant to be. That occasion led to an ongoing relationship with SFL — fools that they were, they let me play in the band!

In this COVID year, with no public opportunity to introduce new songs, and since I have a few new songs, it seemed like they could be put out for people to hear in a way that would at once benefit the church and satisfy my need to be noticed.

Suggested Donation: $20

Any revenue generated by this exercise will go to support SFL and its work, which includes, among other things, support for programs for unhoused people in San Francisco, and for Lighthouse Kathmandu, a Nepali-run organization dedicated to fighting human trafficking and rescuing its victims.

Thanks for checking in. I hope you enjoy the songs!

Please note these are informal demo videos.
