Canadian recording artist Bruce Cockburn will be returning to Durango touring his new album "Small Source of Comfort", his 31st studio album release. Special Guest Jenny Scheinman will open the show. Bruce performed in Mancos in spring 2009 and was the last show that Tami was involved in producing before moving to the bay area, in the fall of 1997. Bruce performed that show also at the Community Concert Hall, as one of the first performances in that venue.
"Small Source of Comfort" (to be released March 8th, 2011) is an adventurous collection of songs of romance, protest and spiritual discovery. The album, primarily acoustic yet rhythmically savvy, is rich in Cockburn’s characteristic blend of folk, blues, jazz and rock. As usual, many of the new compositions come from his travels and spending time in places like San Francisco and Brooklyn to the Canadian Forces base in Kandahar, Afghanistan, jotting down his typically detailed observations about the human experience.
Bruce Cockburn has always been a restless spirit. Over the course of four decades, the celebrated Canadian artist has travelled to the corners of the earth out of humanitarian concerns—often to trouble spots experiencing events that have led to some of his most memorable songs.
