About this event

A stirring, uplifting celebration of Leonard Cohen's powerful works by Stewart D'Arrietta & his band of exceptional musicians. Poetic anecdotes, D'Arrietta's trademark laconic humour & raw vocal style. Cohen's songs as you've never heard them before!

★★★★★ "Surpasses mere imitation" The Advertiser

★★★★★ "He is the full package, both as musician and entertainer" Daily Telegraph

★★★★★ "Magic" The Adelaide Show

★★★★★ "Not to be missed" Daily Business

★★★★ "In D'Arrietta's hands, these are proper rock songs. above all, very, very fun. D'Arrietta sounds as if someone has soaked his lungs in whiskey and set them alight" " Broadway Baby

"Expect paced up songs, expect tango and Texas... and enough overlap with Cohen's own style to satisfy, surprise and delight" Fringe Review- highly recommended
