From Vicky Hynes:
Leonard's death is a tremendous loss but we here in Newfoundland are committed to performing his works for many years to come.

My thoughts are with you all who have worked so closely with Leonard over the years and we look forward to hearing more from you in the future.

With kindest regards,

Vicky Hynes

A sprig of holly is back in the poster for this year’s Feast of Cohen!
The 17th annual Feast of Cohen returns to the LSPU Hall and its original season and stage this coming January 6 & 7.

A celebration of Canadian poet songwriter Leonard Cohen; Feast of Cohen has been a tradition with the local holiday audience of Cohen fans for the past decade and a half.

The dark days of the early winter solstice and the intimate setting of the LSPU Hall stage proved to be a perfect fit for an evening of strictly Cohen.

Putting the show up at the Hall this January will be like a “coming home, coming full circle” for producer Vicky Hynes and members of her Feast of Cohen troupe.

Opening night marks the 17th anniversary of the held over performance of the first Feast of Cohen which played to a sold out jam packed Hall on December 28, 2000.

This year’s program will include 30 selections of Cohen’s words and music; ranging from his debut LP of December 1967 “The Songs of Leonard Cohen” to his newly released CD “You Want It Darker” .

Joining Vicky Hynes is your host Des Walsh and band The Beautiful Losers: Sandy Morris, Kelly Russell, Derek Pelley, Dave & Geoff Panting; and performances by Jill Porter, Bryan Hennessey, Jenny Gear, Sean Panting, Colleen Power and Liz Solo.

Also featuring a spectacular special guest line up of some of our best Newfoundland musicians and songwriters: Amelia Curran, Roger Howse, Kellie Loder, Rube & Rake, and Brianna Gosse.

Tickets are now on sale at the LSPU Hall/RCA Theatre Box Office or on line.
