Feist To Perform Tribute To Leonard Cohen At JUNOs
Feist will pay tribute to Canadian music icon Leonard Cohen at this Sunday’s JUNO Awards in Ottawa.
It was announced today that the singer-songwriter, whose new album Pleasure comes out April 28, will perform an arrangement of a Cohen classic during the broadcast on CTV.
Cohen, who died last November at 82, won six JUNO Awards during his long career and was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.
He has four JUNO nominations this year, including Artist of the Year.
Feist's unique take on Cohen's "Closing Time" appears in the 2012 Canadian film Take This Waltz.
JUNO producers also shared the list of presenters for the big show and it includes Chantal Kreviazuk, Jim Cuddy, Josh Ramsay of Marianas Trench, and LETTERKENNY stars Nathan Dales and Michelle Mylett.
