Through stories and song, cabaret singer Lauren Fox examines the creative genius and conflicted desires of two of folk music's most enduring artists. Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen are widely held as two of the best and most prolific songwriters of their generation. Less known about the fellow Canadian artists is that they had a relationship early in their careers that lasted only a few months, but had a lasting effect on their work. Many have speculated as to why the relationship didn't last, and that's what Lauren Fox explores in The Songs Of Joni Mitchell & Leonard Cohen. With this Feinstein's/54 Below performance, Fox delves into the meaning behind the songs, giving us a better understanding of a painter and a poet who mesmerized the world through song. Highlights of the show include Mitchell's "Chelsea Morning" and "River," as well as Fox's version of Cohen's "Hallelujah," which The New York Times called "deep" and "dramatically-revealing."
