SONGS FOR SUZANNE: THE MUSIC AND POETRY OF LEONARD COHEN
Songs for Suzanne will be a celebration of the beginnings of a distinguished career of a brilliant singer-songwriter. Alongside standards including “Bird On A Wire”, “So Long, Marianne”, “Avalanche”, “Hallelujah”, and “Famous Blue Raincoat”, will feature many songs never performed by the man himself on his Australian tours. Cohen’s songs will be presented faithfully in the way they were originally recorded. Musical accompaniment for the singers Henry Wagons, Melbourne icon Rebecca Barnard, the shape-shifting post-colonialist Delsinki, the incredible talent Alma Zygier and Jacinta Caruana, will consist of mesmerising finger-plucked guitar strings provided by Ben Dix and Dan McKay and the haunting violin of Xani Kolac.
