The upcoming concert of The Small Town Concert Series is called Everybody Knows Leonard Cohen, but just in case you don’t, there is a chance to get acquainted with the songs of the legendary artist at Congregation Beth Shalom Rodfe Zedek (CBSRZ) in Chester on October 21 at 5 pm. Cohen is known not simply as a musician, but also as a poet whose words etch his songs in the listener’s memory.
It’s the sixth annual tribute by The Small Town Concert Series, this year also sponsored by CBSRZ. The concert headlines Chester resident Lauren Agnelli, nominated for a Grammy with the 1980s folk rock group The Washington Squares; features familiar Chester faces – elementary school music teacher Meg Gister on keyboard and vocals; Dana Takaki on violin and her daughter Rachael Aikens, a Valley Regional High School senior, as a vocalist; and Hillyn Natter of Deep River on drums. The Small Town Concert Series band, Amalgamated Muck, will backup the performers.
Tickets ($20) in advance are available at CBSRZ (860-526-8920) or may be purchased at the door.
