Massey Hall presents
In 1970, over 50 years ago Bruce Cockburn released his debut self-titled album, which included “Going To The Country” and “Musical Friends”. Coincidently it was also the first album released by True North records. TN 1 was its catalogue number.
Although mostly recorded in late 1969, the album first hit the stores and airwaves in 1970 and started the long long journey that continues to this day. In addition to the May 2020 release of True North - A 50th Anniversary Box Set, a Limited Edition vinyl box set containing three of Bruce’s most significant recordings release, Bruce has now released 34 albums and played thousands of concerts around the world, something that he continues to do to this day.
A multiple JUNO Award-winner and Canadian Songwriter’s Hall of Fame Inductee, Bruce’s songs have been covered by many artists including Jimmy Buffet, kd Lang, Barenaked Ladies, Hawksley Workman, Jerry Garcia, Anne Murray, Elbow, Mary Balin, Judy Collins, Chet Atkins, The Rankin Family, Blackie & The Rodeo Kings, and on and on.
