Impacting Now


A beautiful tribute to the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Bruce Cockburn shares this instrumental piece in honour of January 20th, Dr.Kings day of rememberance,


When asked about this song Bruce said:


“The piece came into being on MLK Day 2019. It pretty much formed itself in the course of a practice session. It took the shape of a lament, more than a celebration, which set me to thinking of King’s murder, and the loss of a voice of wisdom, compassion and respect that we could really use about now. Hence the title. I think [April In Memphis] conveys the right sense of the poignant beauty, of the dignity, of the man and the spirituality that fueled him.”
