Tower of Song - tribute to Leonard Cohen

May 16th 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm


CD release concert

Tower of Song  is a creative tribute to the music of Leonard Cohen, presented by two celebrated BC singers and songwriters: Oliver Swain and Glenna Garramone. Special guest appearances tonight by Bill Bourne, Ben Sures and Ann Vriend!

A night of rare and classic selections from the Leonard Cohen repertoire, fearlessly interpreted by these artists, with a few original compositions and readings. An evening that celebrates Canada's greatest bard and his influence on modern songwriting. Hear Cohen’s timeless songs arranged for two voices, banjo, string bass, piano and guitar. Together Oliver Swain and Glenna Garramone have crafted vocal arrangements of the great works of Cohen that will satiate and astonish the die-hard Cohen fan in everyone. After several sold-out shows on Vancouver Island, BC, and a successful fall tour of BC and Alberta, Tower of Song will be touring Canada in Spring 2014 in support of their debut album.

Here's a short news clip from CTV about the project.
