This song is a poetic portrait of what it's like to travel to a desert land.

In case you don't know... Canadian singer/songwriter Bruce Cockburn is a vocal supporter of many progressive causes. (Perhaps best known is his recent work on the global land mines issue.)

For several years Bruce has been a spokesperson for the USC, as host and narrator of many USC public service announcements. In a way, Bruce's involvement as host of "River of Sand" is a natural outgrowth of this work.

A good source of info about Bruce Cockburn is "Gavin's Woodpile - The Bruce Cockburn Newsletter", published six times a year. The purpose of the six page newsletter is to keep readers informed of Bruce's tour schedule, new projects he is working on either on his own or with other artists, and where to find his released works. Interviews from numerous sources from the past thirty years, as well as exclusive interviews, articles and photos are also featured. Gavin's Woodpile receives informational support from Bruce's management and record label in Toronto (Finkelstein Management/True North), and Rykodisc in the United States and Europe.

There are many internet sites devoted to Bruce's life and work. Soon this site will have links to many of them. (For now try Alta Vista.)
