The great Bruce Cockburn, who won the inaugural People’s Voice Award at the Folk Alliance International conference in February and is being inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame in September, continues to find inspiration in the world around him and channel those ideas into songs. “My job is to try and trap the spirits of things in the scratches of pen on paper and the pulling of notes out of metal,” he once noted. More than forty years after embarking on his singer-songwriting career, Bruce Cockburn keeps kicking at the darkness so that it might bleed daylight. He's a Canadian legend, and, word to the wise, his Ark shows generally sell out. Bruce comes to Michigan with a new release, "Bone on Bone."
