Bruce Cockburn - Stealing Fire 1984

21 September 2016 - Bruce's 1984 album Stealing Fire has been nominated for a 2016 Slaight Family Polaris Heritage Prize.

This Prize honours Canadian albums of the pre-Polaris era from four distinct time periods: the 60s & 70s, the 80s, the 90s, and the 00s (2000-05). Like the Polaris Music Prize, winners and nominees for the Heritage Prize are albums of the highest artistic quality, without regards to sales or affiliations.

For 2016, two albums from each era will be selected, from a total of ten nominees in each category.

One winner in each category will be chosen by a special jury, and one by the public. Voting is now open here, and the winners will be unveiled on Oct. 24th.

Stealing Fire was a landmark album for Bruce and contained many great songs including "Lovers In A Dangerous Time" and "If I Had A Rocket Launcher" among others.
