Stewart D'Arrietta and band celebrate the late, legendary Cohen.

Rediscover Pop's Poet Laureate

Join us for a not to be missed live event presenting Cohen’s work as you’ve never heard it before! Proudly presented by the Jewish International Film Festival (JIFF).

Stewart D'Arrietta and band celebrate the late, legendary Cohen. Arresting & imaginative musical arrangements are punctuated by poems, with stories of Cohen's life and the motivations behind the songs. The stories give an insight into Cohen's life and the motivations behind the songs, with a sprinkling of laconic humour.

‘A glowing tribute to this legendary artist’ Pop Culture

Few bodies of musical work rouse, seduce and are of such great solace as that of the great singer songwriter Leonard Cohen. Soulful lyrics are laced with raw emotion and sheer seductiveness. D’Arrietta’s arrangements add an uplifting, upbeat feel. ‘In D’Arrietta’s hands, these are proper rock songs’ Broadway Baby

'My Leonard Cohen' was the toast of the Edinburgh and Adelaide Fringe Festivals 2016, 2017 and 2019, with sold out shows at The Sydney Opera House and Melbourne Arts Centre, and rave reviews from critics and fans alike. Expect Cohen’s best, including the heartrending Suzanne, the iconic Tower Of Song, the desperately sensual I’m Your Man, and the mournful, but mighty Hallelujah - all delivered as you've never heard them before.
