Details Dates/Times & Buy Tickets
Having enjoyed a sold-out run at the Sydney Opera House and an acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe season in 2017, Stewart D’Arrietta and his band are taking My Leonard Cohen on a tour of the UK this June. Driven by D’Arrietta’s raw and distinctive vocal style, this stirring celebration offers arresting and imaginative interpretations of the great singer-songwriter’s most powerful works. 
 
Poetic anecdotes, punctuated with D’Arrietta’s trademark laconic humour, offer a narrative frame by which the audience can contemplate the life of one of the world’s most enigmatic songwriters. This is Cohen’s music as you’ve never heard it before.
 
D’Arrietta has enjoyed rave reviews and performed internationally, including at Montreal Jazz Festival, The Riverside Theatre London, EX Theatre Toyko and The Soho Playhouse New York. Credits include Belly of a Drunken Piano (a Tom Waits homage), Feeling Randy (Randy Newman), Satango and Tuxedo and the Little Black Dress. This is a rare opportunity to catch a prolific Australian performer, composer and musical director in the UK.
 
“It is testament to D’Arrietta’s devotion to keeping Cohen’s music relevant that he continues to play to packed houses. Cohen himself would surely have paid to see this one.” Daily Business *****
 
“A fine performer in his own right and a terrifically skilled band… Expect paced-up songs, expect tango and Texas, hard rock and enough overlap with Cohen’s own style to satisfy, surprise and delight.” Fringe Review “HIGHLY RECOMMENDED”
