John Aaron Cockburn will be accompanying Bruce on his 2019 Fall tour dates: September 20 - November 23.

Listen to Pibroch: The Wind In The Valley, from the forthcoming CD, Crowing Ignites. "Pibroch,” nods to Cockburn's Scottish heritage; the title refers to classic Highland bagpipe music, as do his droning guitar patterns."It's music I find really hypnotic in a stirring kind of way," Cockburn says. "It gets in the blood. It's a very simple melodic motif, a four- or five-note swirl that repeats over the droning part of the bagpipe, and then add a grace note, one or two, over it. It’s quite busy sounding but it develops slowly. It's very meditative, nothing at all like the martial pipe and drum music we're more familiar with from Scotland."

Watch the video and hear the song, April in Memphis, from the coming album, Crowing Ignites.

Since 1994 I have received informational support directly from Bruce's record label and management in Toronto (True North Records and Finkelstein Management), with additional support from Rounder Records, Rykodisc Records and Columbia Records in the U.S. and Europe. While True North Records was sold in December 2007, Bruce currently remains with that label. The paper newsletter was first published in February 1994. Ten years later, in December 2003, the last paper issue was published. This site has been on the web since 1996.
