Birthday and all round celebrations of our man; Leonard Cohen are being planned in Winnipeg for September 18, 19, 20. Venues participating are Times Change(d) and The CYRK.

(this is not all confirmed - we only started recruiting artists - so this list will change and grow)

CR Avery
Scott Nolan
Michael Peters
Ann Vriend
Dan Frechette
Drek Daa - That Polish Guy
etc ......
DJ Coda's L. Cohen Dance Party every night @ the CYRK ... with T'ai Pu

The CYRK is a wonderful art performace space run by Drek Daa who is a local poet/singer-songwriter and arts activist. Some of you will recall he recently had his recording ""Hey Leonard Come to the CRYK" forwarded to Leonard Cohen (who liked it, responded favourably and graciously but wasn't able "to celebrate with the Winnipeg poets.This tour runs on solitude and sleep.").
Check out Drek and the Cyrk at:

Times Change(d) is "Winnipeg's Roots veenue".

We are in the planning stages and any local or para-local Cohenites that would like to become involved or get more info can contact Drek at:

Merci and see you at the festivities.
