Bruce Cockburn Background
The folk singer grew up in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and began playing guitar early in his youth after finding an old guitar in his grandma's attic. Cockburn taught himself to play the guitar, by listening to the radio and playing the songs he heard. Cockburn's family was not religious, but early in his adult life, he converted to Christianity, which he said played an important role in his music writing and the way he viewed the world. In 1966, Cockburn joined his first band, joining the Ottawa based band, The Children. During the late '60s, he was in several bands and found some success, but decided to go solo in 1969. The following year, he released a self-titled album. It was his first release as a solo artist and he quickly earned a devoted following of fans, who were drawn to his lyrics and his talented guitar playing.
Cockburn became a well-known artist in Canada, but didn't break through in the United States until 1979. After his first hit album in the US, Cockburn was invited to perform on the NBC Show, Saturday Night Live, in 1980. During the '80s, Cockburn became heavily involved in politics and progressive movements. Many of his songs reflected his beliefs and political ideology. With such a long and storied career, Cockburn has a large fan base, who are looking forward to seeing him live.
