LC Open Mike and festival fundraiser

Post by Mondomando » Tue Jul 28, 2009 4:44 pm

As I had posted elsewhere, here in Winnipeg we are preparing for three days of celebration in September of Leonard's 75th. This Thursday we will be holding an open mike for people to share their covers of Mr. Cohen's songs/poetry or prose OR to share original work inspired or adressed to OH. Details below. Hope any of you in the neighbourhood or vicinity can make it.
