Leading Leonard Cohen tribute act takes to the stage of Dolans Warehouse this Friday

The magical musical legacy of Leonard Cohen will be recreated in Limerick this Friday night as one of the leading Cohen tribute acts take to the stage of Dolans Warehouse. The Leonard Cohen Tribute band is a Dutch ten-piece band that will perform a two-hour tribute to the work of the singer, poet and writer who died in 2016.

What started as a simple wish of Dutch musician Rinus van den Boomen to perform the work of his musical idol has grown into a beautiful, complete act that has become a popular addition in venues across Europe. The Leonard Cohen Tribute Band is currently touring their ‘In My Secret Life’ tribute show across Europe. The show, which has received raved reviews will feature all the great musical works by Cohen including unforgettable songs such as Suzanne, So Long Marianne and Hallelujah. Featuring violin, saxophone, piano, guitar, accordion, percussion and vocals, the Leonard Cohen Tribute band is led by Dutch musician Rinus van den Boomen who has been performing Cohen’s work for many years.

Leonard Cohen was a Canadian singer-songwriter, poet and novelist. His work explored religion, politics, isolation, sexuality and romantic relationships. Cohen was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The Leonard Cohen Tribute Band gives the songs a treatment that remains faithful to the original Leonard Cohen treatment.

The band say their sole ambition is to making his work last and to create an intimate atmospheric event of every performance. Pure, sincere love for Cohen’s special music is the connecting factor.

This event is set to be a beautiful and moving one for both Cohen fans and those who are new to his music. You invited to relive the magic of music and lyrics of this musical maestro in the intimate setting of Dolans Warehouse.
