About this event

Rock & Roll Revisited

Bruce Cockburn is an exceptional songwriter, whose songs of the heart, protest and spiritual discovery are among the best to have emerged from Canada over the past 40 years. Bruce is deeply respected for his activism on issues from native rights, land mines, the environment and Third World debt.

The songs chosen from Bruce’s extensive repertoire include “States I’m In” [2016] and “Wondering where the lions are” [1979] plus others that we know you will enjoy. The musicians rose to the challenge of playing songs by an artist who makes the complex seem simple, whose lyrics are both thought provoking and spirit lifting.

Thank you to John Doyle [lead guitar & vocals], Andrew Harrison [drums], Ed Romaniuk [vocals, guitar, harmonica], Steve Cooke [bass guitar, keyboard]. These wonderful people have donated their time so that all your donations go directly to supporting struggling musicians and food distribution at Beach United Church.

Bruce Cockburn writes on his website “part of the job of being human is just to try and spread light, at whatever level you can do it”. This idea is explored through words and images shared by Karen Dale, who is in ministry with Beach United Church.

Beach United Church, like many other organizations during the pandemic, has lost much of its income. Your donation will help us to continue to provide exciting online programs such as this one, giving the hard-hit performing artist industry a source of revenue, plus helping to maintain our take-away meal programs for people who are hungry. Please be generous.
