About this Event

Build a Tower of Song - Help Build Eli’s Place

Presenting a Canadian icon: Mr. Leonard Cohen! As we celebrate Canada Day while maintaining social distance, Eli’s Place is offering an event to enjoy at home. Join Dr. Mike Daley as he tells Cohen's life story and performs a few of his greatest songs in a lively and fascinating presentation.

With words and music, Dr. Mike Daley will tell the story of Canada’s iconic singer, songwriter, poet and novelist. In the words of Rolling Stone magazine: “for nearly half a century, the novelist, ladies’ man and Buddhist monk built a tower of song – even though darkness was never far off”.

Expand your musical knowledge in the comfort of your own home with an engaging 1 hour video presentation by renowned musicologist Dr. Mike Daley.
