Stewart D’Arrietta and his band celebrate the late, great and legendary Leonard Cohen, offering arresting and imaginative arrangements of Cohen’s most iconic music and poetry, punctuated by stories of his life and the motivations behind the songs.
A smash hit at the Edinburgh and Adelaide Fringe in 2016 and 2017 as well as a sold-out show at Sydney’s iconic Opera House, the stories in My Leonard Cohen give an insight into Cohen's life and the motivations behind the songs, with a sprinkling of laconic humour.
Expect Cohen’s best, including the heartrending Suzanne, the iconic Tower Of Song, the desperately sensual I’m Your Man, and the mournful, but mighty Hallelujah - all delivered as you've never heard them before.
Few bodies of musical work rouse, seduce and are of such great solace as that of the great singer songwriter Leonard Cohen. Soulful lyrics are laced with raw emotion and sheer seductiveness. D’Arrietta’s arrangements add an uplifting, upbeat feel.
For two decades, Stewart D'Arrietta and his collaborators have brought their own musical personality to the works of great songwriters, including Tom Waits, John Lennon and Randy Newman, and have received praise for shows in Australia and overseas.
