Suzanne Sheridan and the music of Leonard Cohen returns to The Piggery Theatre in North Hatley

When Leonard Cohen died in November 2016, the thought of his music dying was unacceptable to singer-songwriter-performer Suzanne Sheridan, of Westport, Connecticut. In 2010 and 2014, Sheridan brought her Joni Mitchell/Leonard Cohen concert to the stage of The Piggery Theatre in North Hatley, Quebec. At the 2010 concert, Sheridan performed solo and in 2014, she was asked back with her full band to give the full treatment to the music of both Canadian artists. When Sheridan received the phone call from the management of The Piggery to do a tribute concert of Leonard Cohen’s music, Sheridan unhesitatingly accepted on behalf of herself and her band. Saturday, August 12 at 8 pm, Sheridan will once again take the stage at The Piggery Theatre. In her own words, “My most favourite venue in the whole world.” Sheridan has been performing the music of Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen for audiences in many parts of the world. “Losing Leonard Cohen was one of music’s greatest losses ever. He has written hundreds of songs and I am sure that if we had not lost him, he would have given us many more. But what we do have is his treasure trove and I look forward to performing at least 20 of those treasures on August 12.”

Among the 20 songs Sheridan will be performing are “Coming Back to You,” “Hallelujah,” “I’m Your Man,” “Dance Me to the End of Love,” “Anthem,” “Famous Blue Raincoat,” and “Closing Time.” To keep Cohen’s music alive and available to audiences is a goal that Sheridan promises to keep.

“When I heard that Leonard had died, I immediately called my band members and asked them to join me at my home to play his music. Subsequently, I got on the phone and invited dozens of my friends to come over to hear us. We ended up with about 50 people at my home, sitting on chairs and on the floor. We were all singing together. It might well have been the first singing shivah.” It was shortly thereafter that Sheridan coincidentally got a call from The Piggery asking her to come back to do a tribute to Leonard.

Jeff Burger, in the Preface of his book, “Leonard Cohen on Leonard Cohen,” writes, “How many of the 701 people inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by 2013 hit their peaks in their mid- and late seventies? Maybe just one: Leonard Cohen, who at age seventy-three, began his first tour in fifteen years in 2008, the same year he was inducted into the Hall of Fame.”
