Watch Paul Kelly and Julia Stone cover Leonard Cohen’s ‘The Partisan’

Performed at anti-racism concert 'Uprising: Songs Of Resistance' earlier this month.

Paul Kelly and Julia Stone have shared their cover of Leonard Cohen‘s ‘The Partisan’, performed in Melbourne earlier this month.

The performance took place at anti-racism concert ‘Uprising: Songs Of Resistance’, coordinated by the Festival of Jewish Arts and Music and the Museum of Inherited Memories.

The concert took place on Thursday April 8, which marked the close of Yom Hashoah, otherwise known as Holocaust Remembrance and Heroism Day.


Kelly shared the performance on social media today (April 20), as it coincides with the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising – an act of Jewish resistance in Poland towards the end of World War II, sparked by the Nazis trying to move the remaining ghetto population to death camps.

As for Stone, she’s on the cusp of the release of her new solo album ‘Sixty Summers’, one of NME‘s Australian releases to watch out for this month.


The album features a slew of collaborators, including The National‘s Matt Berninger, St. Vincent, Vera Blue and Meg Mac. The most recent single, ‘Fire In Me’, dropped earlier this month.
