|Neil Larsen enjoying Leonard Cohen's laudatory intro, Oakland 2010|
April 11, 2012
I received an email from the Glenn Gould Foundation which includes photos of the performers (see below).
One name of note in this email announcement is the special thank you to Musical Director, Neil Larsen.
That is our very own Neil Larsen who was in the band supporting Leonard Cohen on his world tour 2008-2010 and is returning for the Leonard Cohen Old Ideas World Tour 2012.
From the GGF email (in part)
