I am happy to announce that the 2011 Leonard Cohen Night will be held on September 17th, see below. It is a nice legacy for us that Adam Cohen was our headliner in 2009 and now his career has really taken off!

All the best. - Kim

Hey Kim, all the best for your Edmonton event this year - I hope it goes really well and you have lots of folk taking part! :D

Sadly, I won't be attending the Toowoomba event this year, but my thoughts will be there too, of course. ;-)

I can't believe it's 9 years since I attended that wonderful 2002 event in Edmonton! :shock:

Andrew :)
