Bruce Cockburn
7:30pm / The Henry Strater Theatre
One of Canada's finest artists, Bruce Cockburn has enjoyed an illustrious career shaped by politics, spirituality, and musical diversity. His remarkable journey has seen him embrace folk, jazz, rock, and worldbeat styles while travelling to such far-flung places as Guatemala, Mali, Mozambique, and Nepal, and writing memorable songs about his ever-expanding world of wonders. “My job,” he explains, “is to try and trap the spirit of things in the scratches of pen on paper and the pulling of notes out of metal.” That scratching and pulling has earned Cockburn high praise as an exceptional songwriter and a revered guitarist. His songs of romance, protest, and spiritual discovery are among the best to have emerged from Canada over the last 40 years. His guitar playing, both acoustic and electric, has placed him in the company of the world’s top instrumentalists. And he remains deeply respected for his activism on issues from native rights and land mines to the environment and Third World debt, working for organizations such as Oxfam, Amnesty International, Doctors Without Borders, and Friends of the Earth. Throughout his career, Cockburn has deftly captured the joy, pain, fear, and faith of human experience in song. Whether singing about retreating to the country or going up against chaos, tackling imperialist lies or embracing ecclesiastical truths, he has always expressed a tough yet hopeful stance: to kick at the darkness till it bleeds daylight. “We can’t settle for things as they are,” he once warned. “If you don’t tackle the problems, they’re going to get worse.” For his many achievements, the Ottawa-born artist has been honoured with 12 Juno Awards, an induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, and a Governor General’s Performing Arts Award, and has been made an Officer of the Order of Canada. But he never rests on his laurels. “I’d rather think about what I’m going to do next,” says Cockburn. “My models for graceful aging are guys like John Lee Hooker and Mississippi John Hurt, who never stop working till they drop, as I fully expect to be doing, and just getting better as musicians and as human beings.”

Forever young: Durango Diaries
6:00pm / Durango Public Library
As our population ages, no one seems to be slowing down. We hear from three retirees who are still pursuing active lifestyles.   Storytellers include:  Kathy Kronwall, 82, began swimming regularly at the age of 64. Shortly thereafter she joined a swimming masters group and her coach entered her in the local trials for the Senior Olympics. She’s been competing ever since.     Growing up, the women in Diane Legner's life were not allowed to 'glow' (perspire.) She fled to Colorado, where 'glowing' is encouraged, and worked as a physical therapist. She began teaching Pilates in 1994, a practice she continues to teach at age 80.     As a teen, Major Lefebvre was one of the top skiers in the country, earning a spot as an alternate for the Olympic ski team. In 1969, he began skiing at Purgatory Resort, a ski area he helped build. Now retired, he skis about 110 days on the mountain each year.
