Leonard Cohen Tribute Kicks off Concert Series July 2
The 2015 Filberg Park Summer Concert Series kicks off on Thursday July 2nd with the critically acclaimed Tower of Song!
Tower of Song is a creative tribute to the music of the legendary Leonard Cohen, presented by two celebrated BC singers and songwriters: Oliver Swain and Glenna Garramone. Be prepared for a night of rare and classic selections from the Leonard Cohen cannon fearlessly interpreted by these artists and celebrating Canada’s greatest bard and his profound influence on modern songwriting.
Tower of Song serves up Cohen’s timeless songs arranged for two voices, banjo, string bass, piano and guitar. Together Swain and Garramone have crafted vocal arrangements of the great works of Cohen that will satiate and astonish the die-hard Cohen fan in everyone. After several sold-out shows on Vancouver Island, BC, Tower of Song continues to expand their geographical range to put “more power in the tower!” Tower of Song performed to packed houses in Comox back in the spring of 2014.
