2.9: Bruce Cockburn – Dancing in the Dragon’s Jaws (1979)


Spirituality. It’s a pretty open-ended term. But one thing common across the faith spectrum (or the absence thereof) may be the sense of becoming part of something bigger than yourself and experiencing mystery and wonder. It isn’t easily defined and categorized as some systems of faith might have us believe. But it’s significant all the same. Former fundamentalist Christian Graeme associates Canadian singer-songwriter-guitarist Bruce Cockburn’s 1979 album Dancing in the Dragon’s Jaws as the soundtrack to a significant shift to how he perceived spiritual things. What were those things? What sticks with him now? What did his compatriots in the Deeper Cuts trio think? And what makes music spiritual? Open your hymn books (or just put on your headphones) and find out.

Our Spotify playlist has all the songs from this album. Each week, we’ve been adding all the other albums we’ve covered this season to it as well, so check it out!

This is the final episode of season two of Deeper Cuts! We’ll be back sooner than you think in autumn 2018 for a third season. But you can stay connected to us on our twitter feed at @deepercutscast and visit our website at www.deepercutspodcast.com for regular updates.
