I’m really looking forward to this concert that I have put together to celebrate the songs and poems of Leonard Cohen. I will be accompanied by Kevin Fox, cello and guitar; and Roger Travassos, drums and percussion and we will journey through select works of song and poetry by Cohen to illuminate the complicated character of one of Canada’s most celebrated musical artists.
As I’m sure you all know, Leonard Cohen has been an iconic figure on the Canadian landscape for over a half-century. A wordsmith, songwriter, brooding balladeer, ladies man and one time monk, he captured the angst and imagination of his generation and the enthusiastic individualism of the times. Lara Loves Leonard is a cabaret that aims to tackle three pervasive themes in Cohen’s work. Man and His God, Man and His Muse, and finally Man and His World.
As part of the SpringWorks: indie theatre & arts festival in Stratford.
