New Bruce Cockburn album on the way...


Junior Member
Just learned BC has a new instrumental album to be released in September, and has started touring to support it. Both Canadian and US dates are scheduled.

A previous album called "Speechless" was also instrumental, and that cemented Bruce as one of my very favourite acoustic players. So I am looking forward to this one.

I was not aware the Bruce Cockburn released instrumental material. I'll be checking this and the previous album out. I remember discovering Bruce Cockburn as an artist on a late-night FM broadcast where they were playing tracks from Stealing Fire. From there I searched many of his albums.

Thank you for sharing.

Bruce Cockburn is a fabulous (if sometimes somewhat cantankerous) artist -- a terrific songwriter and a superb guitarist. And he's also perhaps the best Bruce Cockburn-style vocalist out there today :)

I am a big, big fan.

Many of his albums over the years have included one or a few instrumental tracks -- so it stands to reason he'd produce some instrumental albums, at least in retrospect. :)

Here's a very atmospheric instrumental track from Bruce Cockburn.
FWIW, I love this one (and, indeed, the whole album from which it comes) -- but it might be a tad too ambient for some of all y'all.

PS Most of his recorded output sounds really, really good, too.

Yup, Deep Lake is on "Speechless" too. That is a compilation of previous compositions, done instrumentally and with (and without) accompaniment. I really dig the one with the clarinet piece.

The new album is all new material. The sample that is available sounds inviting to me.
