On Friday, June 10 at 4PM - Bruce will take a different stage when
journalist Nick Jennings interviews him for The North by Northeast
Music & Film Festival (NXNE) at the Holiday Inn on King Street. The NXNE Festival takes pride in 2005 by celebrating independent success
stories. Besides recording 27 albums, writing hundreds of songs, receiving numerous prestigious awards, Bruce is also known as a
compassionate ambassador for humanitarian causes world-wide. He has traveled extensively on many fact-finding trips to Cambodia,
Vietnam, Guatemala, Kosovo, Nepal, Nicaragua, Mozambique and in January 2004 war-torn Baghdad.
Musicians today aspire to be able to record their music how and when they want to, and hope they can make a long-standing respectable career out of it. Bruce Cockburn does just that and has done so for over 35 years. He has always remained true to himself, his music, his values and his views.
Bruce will be presenting Alanis Morrisette with her Walk of Fame Award on June 5th and is taking part in the White Ribbon Concert (Ending Men's Violence Against Women) at The Phoenix Concert Hall in Toronto on Tuesday, June 7.
