"Ballad Of Len Cohen" - Sylvie Simmons & Heidi Clare

Post by DrHGuy » Tue Aug 07, 2012 2:33 pm

“The Ballad Of Len Cohen,” featuring lyrics commemorating the 2008-2010 Leonard Cohen World Tour and set to music not unlike that of the theme from The Beverly Hillbillies, was performed August 4, 2012 by Sylvie Simmons, the renowned music journalist whose Leonard Cohen biography, “I’m Your Man,” is due to hit the bookstores this fall, and Heidi Clare, widely acknowledged as the best, most powerful old-time fiddler performing today, at the Madison Leonard Cohen Event held in Madison, Wisconsin.

No, I have no idea what Ms Simmons and Ms Clare were thinking – or smoking – when they agreed to this.

Thanks to Maarten Massa's videography, this musical tribute to Leonard Cohen can be viewed at http://youtu.be/2JWlFsds4w8
