Bruce Cockburn has been performing in front of audiences for over three decades. His songs are a record of his life, a solitary road of discovery.
My Beat is an intimate look at the man, the political activist, and the musician. From his early years in Ottawa rock bands, through an international music career spanning five continents, Bruce has always followed his own path – creating music that defies traditional labels.
Candid interviews with Bruce, his family, and friends are interwoven with footage from life on the road, studio recordings and live performances to explore how Bruce’s life has informed his music. Adored by fans and musicians alike, fellow guitarists Jackson Browne and Colin Linden describe why Bruce is considered a virtuoso on the guitar – one of the world’s best.
