Leonard Cohen Marianne Live Edinburgh 2008
A very crude video from my still digital camera. Xavier Mas is playing a baritone-tuned Spanish laud, and didn’t play a single instrument with single strings all night – 12-string guitar, bandurria, big laud and a modern cittern-style laud all of which he made sound very Eastern mediterranean by bending the notes. LC was on great form and positively skipped off the stage before returning for each of three encores, 73 years old or not!
