One of the truly great singers and songwriters of all time. In 1987, I attended a concert at Place des Arts in Montreal. Bruce walked onto the stage and performed for over two hours. No band. No backup vocalists. Just Bruce Cockburn and his music. I always knew he was a great poet, but I hadn't realized how gifted a muscian he was until then. Two hours, solo, with his selection of guitars and a mandolin. Bruce Cockburn was "Unplugged" before Unplugged became cool.
