Bruce Cockburn a Canadian legend and Native Rights activist

BRANTFORD – Legendary troubadour Bruce Cockburn brings 40 years and 31 albums of insightful lyrics and masterful guitar work to the Brantford Sanderson Centre for the Performing Arts, February 15th. The concert is a benefit for Freedom House Church’s Kindness Project, a kids program designed to promote kindness and ward off bullying.

Besides being a Canadian music icon, Cockburn is a well-known environmental activist and Native rights supporter. Songs like “Stolen Land”, “Indian Wars” and “Red Brother” have brought the plight of the Indigenous peoples of North America and around the world into focus in the mainstream. He also performed with Jackson Brown and others for the “Bring Leonard Peltier Home” concert held in late December of 2012.

The event is promoted by Phil Gillies. Tickets are on sale at the Sanderson Centre Box Office on Dalhousie Street in downtown Brantford or by calling 519-758-8090. Tickets are $55 for orchestra seats and $45 for balcony seats.
