About this event

Fringe favourite Stewart D'Arrietta & his band perform stirring interpretations of the great, late Leonard Cohen's powerful works.
Soulful lyrics are laced with raw emotion & sheer seductiveness.
D'Arrietta's signature gravelly voice & the arrangements are uplifting & joyful.
This selection of Cohen's music transports you to the timeless notions of love and loss, sex & heartache, all wrapped up in a powerful & sensual musical show.
As well as music, there is a bit of poetry & storytelling giving an insight into Leonard Cohen's life & the motivations behind the songwriting, with a good dose of D'Arrietta's trademark laconic humour.
Featuring the heartrending 'Suzanne', the iconic 'Tower Of Song', the desperately sensual 'Im Your Man' and the mournful but mighty 'Hallelujah' & many others.

Presented by:
Stewart D'Arrietta
