Bruce Cockburn Maps Out 50th Anniversary Tour

Canadian dates come in September and October
Bruce Cockburn Maps Out 50th Anniversary Tour
This April will mark 50 years since Bruce Cockburn released his self-titled debut album, and the Canadian singer-songwriter has announced plans for an anniversary tour to celebrate the milestone.

Cockburn will tour the United States this spring before a September 4 date at Toronto's CNE Bandshell. From there, he'll play four additional Ontario dates in October, making stops in Peterborough, Ottawa, Belleville and Kingston.

"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," Cockburn reflected in a statement. "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!"

Cockburn released the all-instrumental Crowing Ignites — his 26th studio effort — last September.
