Songs Of Leonard Cohen (Keith James)

These remarkable songs – stripped back, desolate, naked and sensual.

Enigmatic and mysterious, songwriter Leonard Cohen was an unflinching character, with an exact sense of prose, wry humour and courage to wrestle with the unspoken, forgiving human frailty with the stroke of each line. He challenged us to listen more carefully, think more deeply and recognize our own fragility. A Man of Grace.

With a lifetime reputation of performing in this exact way and a love of the ‘pure song’ Keith James gives you a concert of Cohen’s amazing material in the most intimate and sensitive way imaginable, exposing the solitary inner strength of his greatest songs.

The concert includes Cohen’s well known songs: Famous Blue Raincoat, Sisters of Mercy, Suzanne and Hallelujah alongside rarer and profound writing: Who by Fire, Joan of Arc and Secret Life. Also included are Keith’s dramatic performances based on the work of Federico Garcia Lorca – Cohen’s greatest influence.

Some of the most atmospheric and emotive music you will ever hear’  (The Independent)

‘Good work! Glad you are keeping Leonard’s songs alive’  (Sylvie Simmons, Biographer – The Life of Leonard Cohen)

“certainly the UK’s most celebrated and evocative interpreter of golden music” (The Guardian)
