Bruce Cockburn @ Marquee Theatre
Bruce Cockburn is an iconoclast musician who has released 31 albums, his newest being Bone On Bone. The last time I saw him perform was over 30 years ago. His songs of social & political activism remain compelling. Bruce began with Tokyo, then Lovers in a Dangerous Time then States I’m In. He gave wry commentary & witty asides between songs. Other favorites included If I Had a Rocket Launcher, Coldest Night of the Year & Wondering Where the Lions Are. His encored with Last Night of the World, I’ll Give You 3 Al Pardy’s for a $20 bill, a tribute to Canadian poet Al Pardy, and a politically-charged Stolen Land.
