Leonard Cohen  Songs of - One4Review

Well timed or just clever planning auditioncall present ‘Songs of Leonard Cohen’. Following his sell out gig at Edinburgh Castle which we couldn’t get tickets for it was great to see some Leonard Cohen being performed at the Fringe. Ross Jarrett on piano and vocals, Lewis Oakley percussion and Louie Utterson main vocals, narration and executive producer guide us through some eight of the better known Cohen songs, interspersed with readings of some of his poetry and personal history. All of the musical numbers have been slightly adapted  by the company leading to slight variations in well known arrangements. This show was not only a joy to listen to but the view was far from unacceptable. These three handsome young men display their musical talents to near perfection obviously greatly appreciated by the near capacity audience. Geoff could not get a ticket on the day he went to see the show and I was lucky to get one of the last available. Director / Producer John Foley has done a great job but with the quality of material both Cohen’s and the cast it couldn’t have been too difficult a task. A must for Cohen fans or just those who appreciate good live music. ****
