Hallelujah: Regional troupe interprets fifty years of Leonard Cohen

The man behind the potent tribute to Canadian musician-poet-novelist Leonard Cohen – one of the most compelling and durable artists of the past half-century – surfaced on the Sacramento music scene during the one thousand nine hundred sixty as co-founder of the Greater Carmichael Traveling Str Band.

“It was a kind of derivative band of one thousand nine hundred twenty Str music,” said Paul Emery, seventy-one. “I played guitar, mandolin, banjo. We'd a radio indicate on KZAP, ‘The Brother Lee Like Survival Revival Hr With the Greater Carmichael Traveling Str Band and Sanctified Singers.’ It was a very odd program.”

Emery moved to NV City in one thousand nine hundred seventy-sixth. He's presently a veteran music promoter, current news director at KVMR, and former member of Backwoods Jazz and the Foothill Flyers. In two thousand-eleventh, he assembled area musicians to carry out the folk-based, genre-bending works of the gothic baritone Cohen. The current 14-member troupe will carry out Saturday, April nine, at the Crest Theatre.

I took about six months to research the music and all different arrangements of all different songs. I listened to arrangements by people love R. E. M. and Jennifer Warnes and kept emotional songs around. Once I'd it the way I wanted it, I went out looking for musicians. We see at it more love a theater piece than just playing a bunch of songs.
