** PLEASE NOTE: This show will take place at our alternative home for the evening: HEATH STREET BAPTIST CHURCH, HAMPSTEAD. Doors open 7.30pm. Music starts 8.30pm. **

Join poet/singer-songwriter GABRIEL MORENO and singer-songwriter JASON MCNIFF for a night of music and poems as they celebrate the 90th birthday of the great General of song, Leonard Cohen.

McNiff and Moreno will be accompanied by the Brothers of Mercy: Ned Cartwright on piano, Richard Moore on violin and Matt Armstrong on double bass. The band will be performing a selection of compelling Cohen numbers plus a series of their own songs which pay tribute to Cohen’s magical formula of merging poetry and music.

The show proposes a jaunt across the work and life of the great song-poet and a joyful convergence of musicality and lyricism. The ‘Waiting for the Miracle’ show has received raving reviews across the UK in 2024 but this special London edition taking place at HEATH ST BAPTIST CHURCH in Hampstead Heath very near the flat where Cohen himself lived in 1959, promises to be the pinnacle of this year’s performances.

Gabriel Moreno is a Gibraltarian poet and singer songwriter, resident in London. He has published numerous poetry books as well as four critically acclaimed albums. ‘An offshoot of Neil Diamond and Leonard Cohen’ Cerys Mathews, BBC 6 music.

Jason McNiff has made 8 albums of country tinged folk music. He has been described by Mojo as ‘One of the UK’s best secrets’ and by Janice Long on Radio 2 as an ‘Immense talent’.
