Set 2



Kevin Davey posted this setlist with the instruments played and added, "his renditions of Strange Waters and, at the end of the encore, Stolen Land, were transporting. Cockburn is always a brilliant guitarist and an effective singer, but when he gets on a roll, he is something to behold. Ending the show with a full-band rendition of Stolen Land was the perfect embodiment of the old performer’s principle - leave them wanting more.
It's good to see that, after sort of a dry period, Bruce is back!"
