Postby Leannerun » Sat Nov 19, 2016 4:30 pm

After Leonard Cohen's recent passing, members of the Boston arts community yearned for an outlet to express their grief. Haley Katrin Studios and the faculty and staff at Berklee College of Music have come together to organize a Tribute Open-mic Night at The Red Room @ Cafe 939 in Boston. The event will take place from 7-10pm on December 7th, offering the community a chance to pay their respects to the prolific songwriter and artist. Musicians from all-over Boston are invited to sing one or two of their favorite Cohen songs. The tribute will be broadcast by the Berklee Internet Radio Network.

The Czech National Symphony Orchestra (CNSO) has announced that it will pay special tribute to the dusky-voiced balladeer at its December 13th Christmas concert.
Held in the Smetana Hall of the Prague Rudolfinum, the tribute will be part of a special “Nightmare Before Christmas” showcase featuring songs from the 1993 Tim Burton film, traditional Christmas music, and a break-out performance of Cohen’s 1984 signature hit, “Hallelujah.”

New Orleans musicians honor Leonard Cohen Dec. 6

http://www.bestofneworleans.com/thelate ... ohen-dec-6
Around the globe, artists and writers have offered tributes and eulogies in the wake of the death of songwriter, poet and a decades-spanning incomparable enigma, Leonard Cohen. He died Nov. 7 at 82. In New Orleans, local artist and composer David Symons, in conjunction with Sanctuary Cultural Arts Center and Sound Observatory New Orleans, gathers several local performers to honor Cohen. On Dec. 6, Symons performs with Luke Allen, Bremner Duthie, Helen Gillet, Ingrid Lucia, MaeDea Lady LaRose, Harry Mayronne, Micah McKee, Lydia Stein and Bart Ramsey, with house band The Salt Wives.

The performance — "Hey, That's No Way to Say Goodbye" — begins 8 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 6 at Sanctuary Cultural Arts Center (2525 Burgundy St.) in Marigny. Tickets are $10-$20 on a sliding scale, and all proceeds benefit protestors near the Standing Rock Indian Reservation in North Dakota facing the construction of the Dakota Access oil pipeline, where U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have given the hundreds of Native people and supporters a Dec. 5 deadline to leave. Hundreds of people have been arrested, tear gassed and shot with rubber bullets and water hoses.
