Bruce Cockburn 

When: Thu., Nov. 21, 8 p.m. 2019
Price: $21-$42
A fine Canadian import living in the Bay Area drops anchor at the Freight to sing original songs, fingerpick nuanced tunes on acoustic guitar and possibly tell stories about his humanitarian and activist pursuits. Cockburn’s far-flung influences — folk, jazz, rock, country, and world music — bundle into a hefty travel pack with truthful, no-nonsense songwriting. Journeying through politics, love, war, social protest, environmentalism and spirituality, five decades steer his “no plan” course to a remarkably peaceful resonance. The messages shout for justice and truth; Cockburn simply croons. If the show in Berkeley sells out and a position on the waiting list doesn’t land a spot, there’s one last stop on Cockburn’s fall tour. Make the road trip to the Freight or Monterey’s Golden State Theatre before the ship sales.
