Keith James in Concert

The Songs of Leonard Cohen

Enigmatic songwriter Leonard Cohen was an unflinching character, with an exact sense of prose, a wry humour and courage to wrestle with the unspoken, forgiving human frailty.

Cohen’s music befriended an entire generation and his passing marked the end of an era. Within every line of his writing, he has been challenging us to listen more carefully, speak more thoughtfully, think more deeply and recognize our own fragility.

With a lifetime reputation of performing in this exact way, and an undying love of the ‘pure song’, Keith James presents a concert of Cohen’s amazing material in an intimate and sensitive style, exposing the solitary inner strength of his greatest songs - in their original,
perfect form.

Federico Garcia Lorca was said to be Cohen’s greatest influence, and Keith has set a selection of his poems to music. These will be performed alongside songs including Famous Blue Raincoat, Sisters of Mercy, Suzanne, and Hallelujah. He’ll also be performing works from ‘You Want it Darker’, released only 10 days before his death, and produced by his son, Adam.

Keith James has become a pillar of trust. A sublimely intimate and engaging voice.
