A Thousand Kisses Deep Leonard Cohen is one of the few musical figures of this era who commands as much respect now as he did in the sixties.  To commemorate the living legend, once a year, fourteen musicians assemble to recreate the instrumentation of Cohen's most recent touring band with woodwinds, strings, guitars, keyboards and back-up singers. "A Thousand Kisses Deep: The Songs of Leonard Cohen" is the creation of KVMR news director Paul Emery and includes singers Anni McCann and Peter Wilson.  The group performs Saturday, May 5 at the Sierra 2 Center for Arts & Community in Curtis Park.
