Bruce Cockburn - Canada's Walk of Fame 2021

12 October 2021 – SOCAN members Jully Black, Bruce Cockburn, and the late Salome Bey will be inducted into Canada’s Walk of Fame, and SOCAN member Serena Ryder will receive the Allan Slaight Music Impact Honour, at Toronto’s Beanfield Centre on Saturday, Dec. 4, 2021, with a broadcast drawn from the event to air later in December on CTV.

“I’m so grateful for this opportunity to speak, to express, and to represent every little Black boy and girl who looked out and didn’t see someone who looked like them on television, or heard them on the radio, or seen them in film and TV, or saw them teaching in schools,” said Jully Black on learning of her induction.

“Being inducted into Canada’s Walk of Fame feels to me like an excuse for a party,” joked Bruce Cockburn. “It feels wonderful. When I first heard the news, I was very excited. I was like, ‘What? Me?’”

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.
