About this project
The Bards of Bywater are a group of musicians from New Orleans, Louisiana assembled for a special performance series and recording tribute to the great singer/songwriter Leonard Cohen. As Leonard Cohen approaches 80 we will span his entire career in a presentation of slightly lesser known songs that will make for an exquisite musical experience.
The Bards of Bywater are: Helen Gillet (cello, musical toys, and voice) Mark Growden (various instruments and voice) Troi Bechet (vocals) Alex McMurray (guitar and vocals) Aurora Nealand (various instruments and voice) James Singleton (bass) and Larry Sieberth (piano). Because of the elaborate nature of rehearsing and expenses incurred with securing performance venues and studio time for our recording we are reaching out to you to ensure that this project moves from the dream stage to actualization. We are all super excited and honored to bring forth a unique approach to the amazing Leonard Cohen. Please support this project and help us get the word out any way you can from posting this on FACEBOOK to alerting your friends via email.
