CROWE TAKES PART IN COHEN TRIBUTE

Allison Crowe has been invited by MOJO magazine to celebrate Leonard Cohen on a soon-to-be-released tribute album.
Crowe contributes her cover of "Joan of Arc," from the 1971 Cohen album Songs of Love and Hate. Nanaimo's Crowe joins Ian McCulloch, Katie Melua, Claudine Longet, Dion, Linda Thompson, Nick Cave and eight others in the free CD given to buyers of MOJO's November issue.
Crowe is at the mid-point in her third European tour of 2008. One of the highlights was a fundraiser for the John Lennon Memorial Garden. Crowe apparently brought the house down at Liverpool's Royal Court Theatre -- her final performance during Beatles Week 2008, the largest ever Beatles celebration and one of Europe's greatest festivals.
