Congratulations to Bruce Cockburn, one of my favorite singer-songwriters, on the birth of his new baby daughter, Iona. Bruce and his long time girlfriend M.J. Hannett are new parents today! Bruce is 66, M.J. is 36. Iona is Bruce's second daughter, preceded by her sister Jenny, who is 35.
Bruce is one of my favorite musicians, a great singer -song writer and virtuoso guitarist, who has explored a wide array of genres, including jazz, blues, folk, rock, and world music. He has songs themed about romance, social justice, spirituality, and world travel.
Bruce's most recent release, Small Source of Comfort.
