Tower of Song Live at Ground Zero Acoustic LoungeTower of Song Live at Ground Zero Acoustic Lounge

A creative tribute to the songs of Leonard Cohen presented by Ground Zero Productions at Knox United Church.

Tower of Song began as a one-off tribute night for a packed house at Vancouver's The Media Club in 2011, and has since grown into an actively touring folk duo. Produced by Garramone, she invited fellow Victoria musician Oliver Swain, and the show gave Swain and Garramone the chance to grow their musical chemistry. Together as Tower of Song the two have arranged some of Cohen's timeless songs beautifully, for two voices, banjo, string bass, piano and guitar. Tower of Song have played over 90 concerts to thousands of people in theatres and folks clubs across Canada, touring in support of their debut album, In City and In Forest, produced by Juno Award winner Joby Baker. In addition to re-imagining the works of Cohen, Tower of Song includes original songs as part of their live show and recordings. Performance highlights include packed houses at the West End Cultural Centre in Winnipeg, and The Rogue Folk Club in Vancouver, Hugh's Room in Toronto, and receiving 3 standing ovation encores at the ArtsWells Festival.

"The tunes are hauntingly lovely. Wonderful takes with close harmonies and violent re-rhythmings. Musically sound. Faithful by being strongly, creatively Cohen, and yet wholly their own." James N. Porter, Professor Emeritus (Arts), York University.
