This morning I have listened to the CBC Live podcast with a solo concert by Bruce Cockburn. In this podcast you could hear a part of this concert given in April 2009. The complete concert with 20 tracks was available as a concert on demand also.
Bruce Cockburn has released his 30th album Slice O Life – Solo Live this year – compiled from 10 solo shows that Bruce had played solo. He is a great songwiter and guitarist.
One of the instrumental tracks Bruce played in the CBC concert is Jerusalem Poker – here is a video of this tune from another concert in 2006:
