My Leonard Cohen
Following two sold-out shows in Dún Laoghaire in 2023, Stewart D’Arrietta and his band return with his rousing celebration of the late legendary Leonard Cohen’s best-loved music, poetry and stories of his life. This show has previously played to packed rooms at Sydney Opera House and Edinburgh Fringe.
World class musicians offer gutsy and imaginative arrangements of the great singer-songwriter’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 Cohen favourites given the D’Arrietta treatment. New Songs for 2022/23 include the heartrending In my Secret Life, kaleidoscopic Closing Time and menacing The Future.
D’Arrietta has enjoyed a long career as a performer, composer and music director, performing in venues across the globe from New York to Tokyo. D’Arrietta on piano is joined by a live band of celebrated international musicians.
