In February 2009, Leonard Cohen played his first U.S. concert in 15 years. Just a few weeks later, inspired by Leonard Cohen's resurgence, a group of artists at the South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin, TX paid tribute to the legendary singer by performing some of his songs. We start with "Here It Is" from the album 'Ten New Songs,' performed by the French folk duo Herman Dune. Like all of Leonard Cohen's work, the poetry is potent.
