This April, the Mateel is very excited to host one of the most prolific and respected folk/rock artists of our time - the legendary Bruce Cockburn.

His musical career spans over 40 years. He has written songs in styles ranging from folk to jazz-influenced rock to flat out rock and roll, and just as his musical style has varied through the years, his song lyrics have dealt with a broad range of topics. With a dedicated global fan base, and 31 albums (16 Canadian Gold) to his credit, including numerous awards from arount the world, Bruce and his music continue to reveal an unwielding passion for human rights and political issues that few musicians embrace with as much fervor and artistic aplomb. If you're not familiar with Bruce's music yet, now's you're chance to discover it - live, and performed in person! >>>> Food, beer, wine, and refreshments wil be available!
