Grammy-nominated singer comes to Fallon

As a Grammy-nominated singer and touring band member with the legendary songwriter Leonard Cohen, Perla Batalla knew there was much of Cohen’s body of work she still wanted to perform and record.

Cohen’s passing in November 2016 reaffirmed Batalla’s mission of sharing the lesser-known songs of Canada’s poet laureate to a younger public mostly familiar with the well-covered, “Hallelujah.”

Battal will perform in Fallon on Nov. 5 at 7 pm at the Oats Park Arts Center, 151 E. Park St. Box office, Arts Bar and galleries open at 6 pm

Tickets are members, $ 17, and nonmembers, $ 20. Youth and students with valid identification are $ 10. Tickets are available at Jeff’s Digitex Printing or call the Churchill Arts Council at 775-423-1440

Perla Batalla in the House of Cohen: Songs of Leonard Cohen features selected songs and rare personal anecdotes that serve to reveal the timelessness of Cohen’s art through Batalla’s signature cross-cultural style.
