Listen: Bruce Cockburn on Mountain Stage


In the fall of 2017, Bruce Cockburn joined Neil Young in being inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame. Our Song of the Week, “Lovers In a Dangerous Time,” helps justify that distinction, and can be heard on this week’s broadcast during Cockburn’s sixth appearance on Mountain Stage with Larry Groce since 2004.

You can hear his entire set, plus performances by Mark Eitzel, Leif Vollebekk, Allison Pierce and Birds of Chicago, on 240 NPR stations this week.
