Bruce Cockburn has journeyed far and wide as a political activist and musician. But his extensive work can be traced back to the 1970's, when he first rose to prominence in Canada's folk-rock scene.

Cockburn is the recipient of 13 Juno Awards, Governor General's Performing Arts Award, and was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame and the Canadian Broadcast Hall of Fame. The list of awards goes on and on, but that has not stopped Cockburn from continually pushing himself. He shows no traces of slowing down, and has just released his 31st album, Small Source of Comfort.

Hear Cockburn talk about his new album by and the inspiration behind the songs "Iris of the World" and "Each One Lost," which were recorded live for this edition of World Cafe.
