- Renowned singer Christine Tobin has been a long time admirer of Leonard Cohen’s music. She is acknowledged as one of the finest interpreters of his work and has won the prestigious Herald Angel Award at the 2013 British Vocal Jazz Festival for ‘A Thousand Kisses Deep’ her tribute to Cohen.
As the Guardian’s John L. Walters writes “Christine is in a class of her own singing Leonard Cohen. Her 24 carat voice and captivating arrangements are spellbinding, ploughing the depths and expressing the poetry of his lyrics with unalloyed soulfulness”.
Together with long time collaborators Phil Robson on guitar and Dave Whitford on double bass, Christine will take you on a journey through Cohen’s classic repertoire, with a few diversions to admire fellow Canadian songsmiths Joni Mitchell and Rufus Wainwright.
In addition to an evening of world class music, Christine will give enlightening background information about the songs and reveal how Leonard Cohen has influenced her own songwriting.
