Suzanne Sheridan has been performing the music of Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen for audiences in many parts of the world. "Losing Leonard Cohen was one of music's greatest losses ever. He has written hundreds and hundreds of songs and I am sure that if we had not lost him, he would have given us many more. But what we do have is his treasure trove and I look forward to performing at least 20 of those treasures on November 10." Joining Sheridan on stage for this Leonard Cohen tribute will be Bob Cooper on keyboards and Joe Meo on saxophone, flute, and clarinet.
