Music, museums and books


Hi, Sylvie here. I’ve fallen behind on updating the news page, so there’s a lot to report.

I’m going to be playing my first shows since my hand surgery at the end of last year –  starting with a free solo show in celebration of Independent Bookstore Day, April 27th at Green Apple Books in San Francisco – which is the bookstore that came up with the idea of an Independent Bookstore Day in the first place.

After that, I’m going to do my first show backed by the brilliant Berkeley jazz band John Brothers Piano Co: keyboards, clarinet, bass, trumpet and guitar. That’s on May 6th at the Candlelight Club in Berkeley. Details of both shows are on my Tour page.

As to I’m Your Man: The Life of Leonard Cohen, there are even more new translations underway: Serbian, Russian, Hungarian and Czech, as well as a new updated Spanish edition, a new updated Chinese edition, an updated Portugal-Portuguese and a French-language audio book.

If you’re planning to go to the excellent Leonard Cohen exhibition “A Crack in Everything” at the Jewish Museum in New York, I will be making an appearance on a panel talking about Leonard on June 13th. ( The exhibition runs from April 12 to September 8 2019)

The exhibition will move to Copenhagen from October 23rd 2019 to March 8 2020, at the Kunstforeningen GL STRAND and Nikolaj Kunsthal. I will be appearing in Copenhagen too, giving a keynote speech at the Royal Danish Library on December 11 2019.

Hope to see you soon.
