With a career that has spanned four decades producing an acclaimed body
of work that has sold over 2 million copies worldwide, Bruce Cockburn
continues to be revered by fans and fellow musicians alike as one of the
most important songwriters of his generation.
Small Source of Comfort is Cockburn s fi rst studio album in six years - a
rhythmic and highly evocative collection of 14 new tracks inspired by
his renowned unusual and diverse muse - recent trips to Afghanistan
and ponderings on the re-incarnation of Richard Nixon, to road trips and
unreturned phone calls. The album boasts some of the best musicians
recording today, including violinist Jenny Scheinman, former Wailin Jenny
Annabelle Chvostek, and long time collaborators Gary Craig, Jon Dymond
and producer Colin Linden.
As both a songwriter and a guitarist, Bruce Cockburn is considered among
the world s best. The New York Times called him a virtuoso on guitar,
while Acoustic Guitar magazine placed him in the esteemed company of
Andrés Segovia, Bill Frisell and Django Reinhardt.
Cockburn s songs have been covered by such diverse and talented artists
as Elbow, Jimmy Buffett, Judy Collins, Anne Murray, Chet Atkins, k.d. lang,
Barenaked Ladies, and the Grateful Dead s Jerry Garcia.

I am not sure what happened to BC, but he no longer can write good songs. I have to admit that his instrumentals are still good; however, the rest of his songs simply suck. Read morePublished on October 6, 2011 by P. Godo
