News ‘Hey, isn’t that — ?’ Singer-songwriter Bruce Cockburn goes incognito in worship band
Stories We're Following: From RNS
Cockburn, 76, didn’t see a reason to mention his musical career, even after he was invited to play in the church’s worship band. “Nobody knew who I was” when they extended the invitation to play, he said. “They needed a guitar player, so they were foolish enough to ask me.”
If, three years later, no one had figured out that the house guitarist has 35 albums and 13 Junos — the Canadian Grammys — to his name, they likely realized it in May, when Cockburn released four songs he’d written as a fundraiser for the church’s programs to assist homeless people and combat human trafficking.
