Iconic and enigmatic; Jane Siberry is one of the world’s most unique and gifted singer/songwriters. Blessed with a sincere integrity and emotional depth, her work has spanned 3 decades, with the release of 14 studio albums and performances on concert stages around the world.

Australian vocalist Ali Hughes plays Toronto’s beloved Hugh’s Room this June, celebrating Leonard Cohen with her critically acclaimed narrative concert, LEONARD COHEN KOANS!!

Buoyant and vigorous in its celebration of the music and spirit of the iconic legend, LEONARD COHEN KOANS is a must see for Cohen lovers and newcomers alike – the critically acclaimed show being hailed as

“Heart-stopping” (www.theatermania.com)

“Spine-tingling” (SX Magazine) 

“… Hands down the best I’ve ever heard!” (nytheater.com).

Best known in Canada for her work touring and recording as a backing vocalist for Jane Siberry, Ali is making a name for herself in music and cabaret circles with her dynamic performance, sensuous voice and captivating presence.

Supported by outstanding jazz musicians, LEONARD COHEN KOANS moves from ethereal to full throttle in a heartbeat through a thoughtfully curated collection of Cohen’s famous poetry, prose and song.  As well as lesser known gems such as ‘The Guests’ and ‘The Butcher’, you will hear Cohen favourites – ‘If It Be Your Will’, the magnificent ‘Chelsea Hotel #2’, and the undeniable masterpiece ‘Suzanne’ – in all new arrangements highlighting the dynamism and intimacy in his incredible musicality.

Inspiring, passionate, intimate and sincere, LEONARD COHEN KOANS gives you another chance to savour the creative spirit with which he so exquisitely courted the world.
