Bruce Cockburn travels to Baghdad
POSTED: JANUARY 8TH, 2004
Prior to returning to the concert stage, Bruce Cockburn will be travelling to Iraq as part of a humanitarian fact-finding mission. No stranger to the World's trouble spots, Bruce had this to say about his upcoming trip, "The calamitous situation faced by the Iragis is a human event that needs to be understood by all of us. As a songwriter, it goes with the job to bear witness to the human evets; as a concerned citizen, I welcome a unique opportunity to gain some of that understanding which I hope to share with others." Bruce will travel to Iraq with Bishop Thomas Gumbleton, photojournalist Linda Panetta and physician's assistant Johanna Berrigan.
