Noteworthy Photos: 2013 Leonard Cohen Lucca Concert

These compelling shots were taken at the July 9, 2013 Leonard Cohen Lucca concert by Ciarán Dorr. Worthy of special note are the photos of

  • Hattie Webb’s visage captured with unusual delicacy
  • Neil Larsen in action on accordion
  • Backup singers Charley & Hattie Webb and Sharon Robinson (final photo) looking like the confident, competent women they are
