Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier - Place des Arts Book

Nathaniel Rateliff plays Leonard Cohen, celebrating his life and work with the wordless orchestra.

One of the most fascinating and enigmatic singer/songwriters of the late ‘60s, Leonard Cohen developed a massive following across six decades of music-making, interrupted by various digressions into personal and creative exploration, all of which have only added to the mystique surrounding him.

Denver singer and songwriter Nathaniel Rateliff joins the Wordless Orchestra, blending his folk, Americana, and vintage rhythm & blues influences with Cohen’s timeless lyrics for a collaboration six decades in the making. From Hallelujah to Suzanne, witness the power of songwriting to touch the deepest recesses of the soul.

All performances will feature support from pianist Phil Cook, the virtuosic folk musician and frequent collaborator of Rateliff’s.
