Folk Alliance International will be introducing 2 new awards this year during the International Folk Music Awards, and our very own Bruce Cockburn will be the first recipient of The People’s Voice Award, which will be “presented annually to an individual who has unabashedly embraced and committed to social and political commentary in their creative work and folk music career.”

“The inaugural People’s Voice award will be presented to multi-platinum recording artist Bruce Cockburn, whose 40-year career has consistently highlighted environmental, social, and indigenous issues globally.”
