Christine Tobin plays Leonard Cohen in North Yorkshire Next Month.


'A Thousand Kisses Deep'
A wonderful evening of poetry and song celebrating the spellbinding words and music of Leonard Cohen. This new show brings together some Cohen staples previously recorded and performed by Christine and some new unexplored material. Together with longtime collaborators Phil Robson on Guitar and Dave Whitford on Double Bass they take you on a journey through Cohen's classic repertoire, with a few diversions to admire fellow Canadian songsmiths Joni Mitchell and Rufus Wainwright.
In addition to receiving an evening of world class musical entertainment Christine will be giving enlightening background information about the songs and sharing how Leonard Cohen has influenced her own songwriting.
Nov. 22: Masham Town Hall.
Nov. 23: Stillington Village Hall.
Nov. 24: Pickering Memorial Hall.
All concerts start £7:30pm.
Thanks to Peter Bevan for drawing this mini-tour to my attention.
Lance.
