Bruce Cockburn coming to Trail

The legendary singer-songwriter guitarist hits The Bailey Aug. 7

The legendary singer-songwriter guitarist Bruce Cockburn is coming to Trail this summer.

One of Canada’s finest and most decorated musical artists, Bruce Cockburn, has enjoyed an illustrious career, shaped by politics, spirituality, and musical diversity. He takes the stage with his band at The Bailey Wednesday, Aug. 7.

His lyrics dance with poetry in one hand, and politics in the other, crafting deep questions and iconic melodies for contemporary listeners. Bruce’s extensive repertoire of musical styles, skillfully crafted lyrics and prized songbook will be celebrated for many years to come. Songs such as, Lovers in a Dangerous Time, If a tree Falls in the Forest, Coldest Night of the year, One Day I walk, Tokyo, Rocket Launcher and many others, have become fan favourites right across Canada and span many musical genres.

Cockburn’s 33 albums have earned him 13 Juno Awards, an induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, a Governor General’s Performing Arts Award, a recognition as an Officer of the Order of Canada, the Polaris Heritage Award for 1984’s “Stealing Fire”, and the Canadian Folk Music Award for Top Solo Artist for his most recent album “Bone On Bone” (2017). This album won the Juno Award in 2018, and Cockburn was also inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame last year.

An Evening with Bruce Cockburn and Band will take place on Wednesday, Aug. 7 at 7:30 p.m. at the Bailey Theatre in Trail.

All seats are reserved and are priced from $49.50 including gst (SC extra). Tickets will be available at the Bailey Box office, or by calling 1-866-368-9669 or online at thebailey.ca. Tickets will go on sale to the public on Friday April 5 at noon.
