Martin Kubetz and Marie-Élaine van Egmond - tribute

Post by Maarten » Tue Sep 22, 2020 11:53 pm

Hi friends

As a tribute for Leonard's 86th birthday, Martin Kubetz and Marie-Élaine van Egmond have collaborated in making a couple of beautiful renditions of Leonard's songs. They have asked me to post them here on the forum for all of you to enjoy their performances.

Those of you who were at the 2018 Budapest Event will surely remember Martin Kubetz as the splendid piano virtuoso who participated at the Open Mic session and Marie-Élaine who has performed there aswell. Now they have collaborated for a duet of Crazy To Love You, one of my favorite songs and Martin has recorded 2 other songs: Thanks For The Dance and the much underestimated song By The Rivers Dark.

I hope you will enjoy these videos!

Thanks For The Dance (The Flame version)
By The Rivers Dark
Crazy To Love You (duet with Marie-Élaine)

All good things
Martin, Marie-Élaine and Maarten

Bravo, Martin and Marie-Elaine, that was great, very special. 8)

I hope we can witness you in action again somehow somewhere, hopefully at a rescheduled event in Belgium. :D

Maarten, thanks too for posting this here.
