Stewart D’Arrietta’s six-piece band bring together their rousing celebration of the late legendary Cohen – offering a selection of the great singer-song writer’s best-loved music.
Enjoy gutsy and imaginative arrangements of Cohen’s most powerful works driven by D’Arrietta’s raw vocals. This is Cohen’s music as you’ve never heard it before.
The classic “Tower of Song”, sensual “I’m Your Man” and anthemic “Hallelujah” are just a few of the 18 Cohen favourites given the D’Arrietta treatment.
D’Arrietta returns to the Epstein following two great seasons of his show “Lennon – Through a Glass Onion” last year, which also performed in venues across the globe, from London to Tokyo.
D’Arrietta has enjoyed a long career as a performer, composer and musical director. His other credits include “Belly of a Drunken Piano” (a Tom Waits Homage), Feeling Randy (Randy Newman), Café Brel, Reunion, Satango and Tuxedo and the Little Black Dress.
“My Leonard Cohen” is touring worldwide with D’Arrietta on piano and vocals and a band of world class musicians.
