Views and Brews “Leonard Cohen: A Life in Art”
Leonard Cohen: A Life in Art
Leonard Cohen just celebrated his 78th birthday while on a world tour with his new album “Old Ideas” and Oct. 31 and Nov. 01 he and his band kicked off the US portion of this tour right here in Austin, TX. KUT’s Views and Brews had the pleasure of hosting Roscoe Beck, Cohen’s collaborator, producer, bassist and local Austinite, and Sylvie Simmons, author of I’m Your Man: The Life of Leonard Cohen, along with Sharon Robinson, The Webb Sisters, Javier Mas, Mitch Watkins, Alexandru Bublitchi, and Rafael Gayol to explore the life and art of living legend Leonard Cohen.
The Cactus Cafe was packed and it was a magical evening. We hope you enjoy this video from the night, featuring four of Cohen’s tunes and illuminating conversation! And be sure to check back for more audio and video highlights soon.
