On Wednesday (16 June 2010) at Massey Hall, iconic recording artist Bruce Cockburn and guest stars will perform some of his best-known material. Cockburn talks over the set list with Brad Wheeler.
From the album Life Short Call Now, 2006ís Slow Down Fast could be construed as a musical version of an "end-is-nigh" sign. Cockburn explains:
"I have a lot of songs like that, really, over the years. Trickle Down and Call It Democracy, I would put in the same league. Itís a song where Iím saying, ĎLook at the things that are going on Ė are we going to address this or arenít we?í The answer is yes, a little of both, but Iím afraid not enough."
