Came So Far For Beauty A Leonard Cohen Tribute Nick Turner (The Rogues, The Nick Turner Conspiracy) has been a Leonard tragic since his early teens, and started performing his material almost forty years ago, busking on the London Underground and Paris metro. Leonard was well received in both places. Nick saw Leonard all three times he came back to Australia when he started touring again (at the age of 74!) and revelled in the breathtaking reinvention of his classics weaved with fresh material. This tribute seeks to capture the sublime atmosphere of those gigs, a respectful heartfelt nod to the genius, wisdom, humour and humility of one of the greatest poet singer songwriters. Nick is joined by some of Freos finest musos for this very special night, including the wonderful Phoebe Deklerk, adding the sensual female accompanying vocals that are at the very heart of so many of Leonard’s songs.
