The photo atop this post presents the Hillel Band at McGill: Nov 1954. That’s Leonard Cohen in the middle, rear with guitar and his friends, Robert Hershorn at far right with banjo and Mort Rosengarten second from right with trombone.
The Buckskin Boys, shown below, is widely regarded as Leonard Cohen’s first band, Information about the Buckskin Boys can be found at Identifying The Do-se-do Guy In Leonard Cohen’s First Band.

Dogs And Horses And Bears, Oh My!
Indeed, while I’ve posted many photos of Leonard Cohen with his canine friends, a shot of the Canadian singer-songwriter astride a white stallion, and even one image with a real monkey, these are the first photos of Leonard Cohen I’ve found that also feature a bear..

This is not the only time a photo was taken of bagpipes being played for Leonard Cohen. It happened again 70+ years later at the ceremonies of the 2011 Prince of Asturias Awards in Oviedo; check it out at Cohen se quita el sombrero ante los gaiteros asturianos by Lucía González (El Mundo: Oct 18, 2011)
