Leonard Cohen & More


Leonard Cohen & More Experience the sensuous, bittersweet music of Leonard Cohen and his contemporaries, given a feminine touch in the hands of Canadian chanteuse, Patricia O’Callaghan. Mixing his lesser-known songs with new twists on the hits, she peppers these fresh interpretations with French and Spanish, giving the lyrics cultural context and taking them into the realm of musical poetry. Patricia’s easy connection with the audience, her striking stage presence, and her warm, crystalline voice create an ambiance of intimacy that perfectly serves the songs of this iconic troubadour.
 
Performing beloved hits like “Who By Fire?, “Suzanne” and “Dance Me To the End of Love”, Patricia, along with Robert Kortgaard on piano and Andrew Downing on double bass, delivers a beautifully personal yet quietly powerful concert experience.

Patricia O’Callaghan is something of a wandering minstrel. Her fifteen-year career has taken her across genres, continents, and a range of disciplines and passions.

Her recording career spans five solo albums. A speaker of French, Spanish, and German, her early recordings focused on European cabaret, and she is considered a specialist, most significantly, in the music of Kurt Weill. Patricia has performed his Threepenny Opera, Seven Deadly Sins, and Kleine Mahagonny with Soulpepper Theatre Company, Edmonton Opera, and Vancouver Opera.

She’s one of the best singers ever to come out of Canada. –Vivoscene
