Lenny Live at Gatherland: Soul Scribbles
The fear of Death and the illusions of Life provided the undercurrent for the search of a whole generation. The 1960s probed the questions and possible answers via a self-introspection of songs and poems. Lenny traces the songs that mapped his world view and anxiety for a life fully lived. ‘Soul Scribbles’ is a personal sharing, shedding light on the social domain: from Joe Hill to Bob Dylan and the late Leonard Cohen; the Chinese devotees of that generation from Taiwan and the mainland, as well as self-inkings from Lenny, make up the evening's sonic soul trip.
