Re: Leonard Cohen Nominated In 4 Categories - Juno Awards 2017

It was a great evening made even more special by a couple of surprises. Feist sang Hey, That's No Way To Say Goodbye. So moving and so sadly appropriate. :( The tribute was introduced by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife, Sophie. Justin was proudly sporting his Unified Hearts tie! I had not...

Re: Leonard Cohen Nominated In 4 Categories - Juno Awards 2017

Thanks, Leslie. It's in Ottawa this year and ten minutes from my house! I love Feist so was very excited when I heard she was going to do the tribute. I wonder if Adam will be there to accept the Juno (I'm pretty sure Leonard will win at least one).

Re: Tributes to Leonard around the world

Feist will be performing during the ceremony, paying homage to one of Canada's greatest and most missed musicians. Feist will perform a tribute to Leonard Cohen, debuting what has only been described as "a moving arrangement of one of Cohen's classic songs." http://exclaim.ca/music/article/feist_to...

Re: Leonard on the cover - also contributions requested

I was surprised to find this magazine in my local grocery store. Bounder is a free Ottawa publication that describes itself as "a magazine by, for and about men". I don't know if the article by John Rowlands was written for the magazine as I have read elsewhere about his photo session with Leonard i...

Re: Season's Greetings 2016

Thank you Eija and Jarkko for the beautiful photo and for the good wishes. Leonard's words seem so appropriate this year.

Good wishes and love to all my fellow Cohenites. I look forward to keeping Leonard's music and words alive with you all.

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

Leonard tried to warn us and soften the blow but I still couldn't believe that he would leave. It is impossible at the moment to comprehend a world without Leonard. He has been part of my life since I was seventeen. His words and music have helped me through some difficult times throughout the years...

Chor Leoni men's choir celebrates Leonard Cohen on new album

Here's a recent CBC Music article I've been meaning to post: When you think of choral music, Leonard Cohen is not the first name that comes to mind. Chor Leoni, the celebrated Vancouver men's choir, is set to change that perception with its latest album, Wandering Heart, due out Nov. 1. The album in...
