Cockburn plays for Iraq

Published: 2004-01-12
Ottawa native Bruce Cockburn now makes his home in Montreal; but this Canadian is much more than a guitar player. The artist is a longtime humanitarian and political activist. He uses his songwriting to express his feelings on the sights around him including political activism. Included in those sights are visits to war torn countries. Cockburn's latest excursion is to war ravaged Iraq. Cockburn left Monday (Jan.12) with three Americans to observe the situation in Iraq. While Cockburn is going only as an observer he did take his guitar. Cockburn has received numerous awards for his humanitarian efforts.
