Sadly as you already know, the great Edmonton Folk Festival had to be cancelled this year. Bruce has played there many times and it's always a highlight of his year. The Festival has put out some highlights from it's past and among them is this performance of "Lovers In A Dangerous Time" featuring both Jenny Scheinman and Gary Craig. When you reach the Festival's site you'll also see a link to Bruce's thoughts about the Festival. Here's the link to the performance. I might add we can't wait for them and so many others to get back in action although being cautious is the way to go for now. Here you go: www.youtube.com/watch?v=8gCDyXaskJ4... See MoreSee Less
Hi, Here's the beautiful instrumental "End Of All Rivers". This version is taken from Bruce's 2009 live album Slice O Life but the original recording was on the all instrumental album Speechless released in 2005. Enjoy. www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_Ut73IXrz0... See MoreSee Less
Many years ago in the late 60's and early 70's I used to go to Passim in Cambridge Boston, one of the great "folk" clubs in North America and one of the oldest as well, with a storied history. I would usually be there with Bruce Cockburn and Murray McLauchlan and later on with Stephen Fearing and Dan Hill. In any case like all clubs they are shut down but hoping to open as soon as possible. They contacted us about using Bruce Cockburn's "Wondering Where The Lions Are" as part of their fundraising efforts to support local musicians and we were more than happy to contribute the song. Here's what Passim had to say:
Passim Emergency Artist Relief (PEAR) Fund
Thanks to all who have contributed to our Passim Emergency Artist Relief (PEAR) fund which has provided much-needed financial relief to musicians during the Coronavirus crisis. $130,000 has been raised to date, and grants totaling $115,000 have been distributed to 240 artists. This has been a labor of love for all of us at Passim, and we appreciate your generosity.
To celebrate the reopening of the PEAR fund, and we had a special show live from Club Passim! Featuring a live set from Hank Wonder, updates on the PEAR fund from managing director Matt Smith, and a debut of a Bruce Cockburn music video made for the PEAR fund by many local musicians.
