About this event

D'Arrietta's 6 piece band presents a stirringly personal tribute to the legendary Cohen.

The musical interpretations are gutsy and arresting.

The stories give an intimate insight into Cohen's life and motivations, with a sprinkling of laconic wit.

Few bodies of musical work rouse, seduce and are of such great solace as that of the great singer songwriter Leonard Cohen.

Expect a collection of Cohen's best, including the heartrending 'Suzanne', the iconic 'Tower Of Song', the desperately sensual 'I’m Your Man', and the mournful, mighty 'Hallelujah' - all delivered as you've never heard them before.

For two decades, Stewart D'Arrietta has brought his own musicality to the works of great songwriters, including Tom Waits, John Lennon and Randy Newman, & has received praise in both Australia & overseas.

'My Leonard Cohen' was a sold out smash hit at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe Festival with rave reviews from critics & fans alike. A glowing tribute!
