Going South!

Thursday, April 16th, 2015

Sylvie is heading back to South America at the end of the month to play two shows in Bogota, Colombia on 1st and 2nd May. At Que Viva La Musica, part of the Bogota Book Fair, she will talk about her life in music, first writing about it and then writing songs and performing herself. Following the staged interview, she will sing some songs. The second show is a full concert, featuring songs from Sylvie’s Light In The Attic Records debut, and a selection of Leonard Cohen songs, where she and her ukulele will be accompanied by Bogotan guitarist Nicolas Holguin. Please check the tour page for details.

She has also accepted an invitation from El Mercurio newspaper in Chile to fly out in mid August  to play a major concert. Here’s a story on Sylvie in El Mercurio. https://gmotupper.wordpress.com/2015/02/15/sylvie-simmons-la-chica-que-escribe-de-rock/

Meanwhile, the Brazilian edition of I’m Your Man: The Life of Leonard Cohen is due to hit the book stores in the next few weeks!

On the road again!

Thursday, July 24th, 2014

Leonard Cohen will turn 80 years old on  September 21st. He plans to celebrate by releasing a brand-new studio album (and buying that pack of cigarettes he’s been promising himself these past two years!)! and his fans are planning to celebrate him with all manner of events. So Sylvie’s going back on the road with her book and her uke to join them. Her upcoming appearances include Oslo; Helsinki; Dublin; Winchester, England; Reno, Nevavada and Cartagena, Colombia. We’ll post details as we get them on the  Tour page.
