Tower of SongCanadians and folks from all over the world cherish the songs of Leonard Cohen, and perhaps the most evident dedication of appreciation is through playing his songs.

Covering Cohen’s works is a task not easily completed due to his own unique approach to music, but Victoria-based songwriters and musicians Oliver Swain and Glenna Garramone were up for the challenge, forming the duo Tower of Song. The two share a love of the renowned Canadian songwriter and possess an undeniable musical chemistry that compliments their impressive voices and multi-instrumental talents.

The duo will perform their reimagined covers, such as Swain’s live show favorite “A Thousand Kisses,Deep,”  and Garramone’s unique “Hey That’s No Way to Say Goodbye” as well as originals of their own that are Cohen-inspired.

Other Cohen songs include “Hallelujah,” “Suzanne,” “Everybody Knows,” “The Stranger Song,” “Chelsea Hotel #2,” “Take This Waltz” and many more.

It is not a more fitting time to pay tribute to Cohen, now 80 years old and still going strong. The legendary singer-songwriter and poet was nominated for four Junos this year, including Juno Fan Choice, Album of the Year, Artist of the Year and Adult Alternative Album of the Year.

Tickets: General $25.00, Group of 4 $92.00 (includes all service charges)
