I have added a new page to the website. It is in memory of my friend, Richard Hoare. Please have a look.

The self-titled album, Bruce Cockburn, was released in April 1970. To celebrate this, Bruce is embarking on an anniversary tour. He said:

“In 1969, when I was feeling the need to record an album of the songs I’d been writing, I had no concept of what that might lead to. Not unusual for a young person, I guess. In some organic way it felt like it was time. The future wasn’t really an issue. It still isn’t. For each of us, there’s a future or there isn’t. But looking back over the arc of fifty years of recording, performing, and travel, not to mention relationships and personal challenges, I can only shake my head and mutter a word of thanks for all of it. Even if I’d been a planner by nature, I doubt I could have predicted how things have gone. And they’re still going!”

Since 1994 I have received informational support directly from Bruce's record label and management in Toronto (True North Records and Finkelstein Management), with additional support from Rounder Records, Rykodisc Records and Columbia Records in the U.S. and Europe. While True North Records was sold in December 2007, Bruce currently remains with that label. The paper newsletter was first published in February 1994. Ten years later, in December 2003, the last paper issue was published. This site has been on the web since 1996.
