Conspiracy of Beards going to Berlin

Postby jarkko » Fri Jan 20, 2017 10:22 am

I wanted to reach out and let you know that Conspiracy of Beards is planning a trip to Berlin from May 29-June 4, 2017. We are trying to raise funds and seeking some corporate sponsorship to help make it happen. As you can imagine, the cost of traveling with 20+ singers is quite high. We have just launched a crowd funding page and will be ramping up our efforts very soon. https://www.gofundme.com/beards-berlin

Warmly,
Clay Eugene Smith

Update from Clay:
http://us2.campaign-archive2.com/?u=484 ... 43fc53bbcd
Here is a link our recent newsletter about the launch of our GoFundMe campaign (https://www.gofundme.com/beards-berlin) to help us get across the pond.

Please share with friends and fans of The Leonard Cohen Files and anyone you think might be interested in catching our shows and or helping out by donating. Every little bit helps.

Our dates are May 26-June 4. We Booked our first show (actually our last show of the tour) on June 4th at Maxim Gorki Theater in Berlin. It'll be a Cohen tribute show with readings and music from our friend Daniel Kahn (a long time Cohen fan and talented musician who's recent Yiddish translation of Hallelujah went viral - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XH1fERC ... e=youtu.be - and others, followed by a full set from the choir. We are also looking at booking shows in Hamburg, Frankfurt, Prague, & Dresden.

All the best!

Thanks! We are very excited to make our way to Europe this summer. Our passion for the songs and poetry of Leonard Cohen is deep and we can't wait to sing for you.

We are raising funds here -https://www.gofundme.com/beards-berlin and have a donor who will match the first $10,000. Every little bit helps.

We are looking for suggestions for venues in Hamburg, Dusseldorf/Cologne, Prague, and Dresden. We have a few ideas but want to make sure we sing where Leonard Cohen fans will find us!

Thank you kindly and we hope to see some of you when we arrive! Please let your friends know we are coming.
