Description

Beware, the schedule will be advanced at 7pm if curfewIf I knew where the good songs come from, I would go there more often. Leonard Cohen, who liked to repeat these words, passed away on November 7, 2016 at the age of 82. In his fifty-year career, the man Bob Dylan called the Kafka of the Blues has had time to offer us some good songs, beautiful compositions; a sublime poetry. His artistic heritage is immense, and so is his place in the history of folk music. An entire generation has been marked by songs like Suzanne, So Long Marianne, The Partisan or Avalanche. This generation, of course, is that of the sixties, of cultural liberation and social emancipation. But Leonard Cohen oversted the hurdles of time and eventually reached a new audience. This is the case of H-Burns, who now composes, sings and performs thanks to the Canadian. His lyrics and his music made Renaud Brustlein want to do this job, bathed in his youth by Cohen's albums that his parents listened to. The idea of transmission is very strong when you are a musician, to give back what we have been given, to share with those who will survive us an artistic heritage that seems moving, inspiring and fundamental. Passing on the torch to the younger generation while reviving the memory of those who grew up with Leonard Cohen is H-Burns' new aspiration. At a time in his career when the singer from Romans-sur-Isère feels the desire and the need to refocus on an artist who has marked his life, he wants to develop more than a musical project. He would like to propose a concert with an intimate tone, which would be performed in theatres and which would revisit the first ten years of Cohen's work, from the Songs of the first album to New Skin for the Old Ceremony. During this true initiation journey, H-Burns will go in the footsteps of the poet, will go to the places where he lived, where he wrote, coffee shops and bagel shops from the Mount Royal plateau to St. Catherine Street in Montreal where he experienced his first sleepless nights, the Chelsea Hotel which he immortalized in song to the Hollywood Hills at the heart of which he knew the end of his life , to its Buddhist temple. A memorial crossing, this musical tribute will be destined to be turned and offered to the cinemas. In support of this concert, H-Burns recorded on tape, under the conditions of the sixties, an album of covers, in order to keep the soul and prolong the spirit of Leonard Cohen.
