My Leonard Cohen – The Pheasantry, Chelsea, London
Stewart D’Arrietta and his band offer gutsy and imaginative arrangements of the great singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen’s most powerful works. The iconic Tower of Song, the heartrending Suzanne, the desperately sensual I’m Your Man , and the anthemic Hallelujah, are just a few of the Cohen favourites given the D’Arrietta treatment. Expect to ‘laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again’. Beneath the roaring bluster and cyclonic musicality, the sinewy strands of romance weave poignant and compelling stories of life, love, lust and loss – this performer’s favourite themes. My Leonard Cohen sold out at the Sydney Opera House and was the toast of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2016, 2017, 2019 and 2022 with rave reviews from critics and fans alike.
