Legendary poet, singer/songwriter and alleged ladies man Leonard Cohen is interviewed in his L.A. home about his extraordinary life and times, interspersed with old footage from his private photo collection and lavish praise plus elaborately performed Cohen cover songs from a motley crew of colleague musicians, amongst whom Kate & Anna McGarrigle, Rufus & Martha Wainwright, Nick Cave, Jarvis Cocker and U2's Bono and The Edge. By way of dessert the latter two and their band mates even get to back up the man for a special performance of his own

Live music: THE SECRET CHORDS

No one who saw Leonard Cohen at Sandalford winery when he restarted touring in 2009 (at the age of 74!) will ever forget it. It was sublime. Nick Turner saw him then and indeed all three times he returned to Perth.  And years before that, he kept himself alive busking his way round Europe and across America playing Leonard’s songs.  

The Secret Chords seek to capture the wonderfully rich and joyful atmosphere of those last gigs,  but also the feeling so many of us got when we listened to a darker, more spartan Leonard in our bedrooms in our early teens. And indeed, thanks to Phoebe Deklerk, the incredible soaring reinterpretations of Leonard’s songs by Jennifer Warnes and KD Lang.  

The Secret Chords are are proud to bring you this respectful heartfelt homage to the genius, wisdom, humour and humility of one of the greatest poet singer songwriters.
