Each song performed by Keith James is stripped back – desolate, naked and sensual
Enigmatic, mysterious and sub textural, songwriter Leonard Cohen is an unflinching character, with an exact sense of prose, a wry humour and courage to wrestle with the unspoken, forgiving human frailty with the brush of each line.
His recent spectacular world tour of stadium venues has been successful beyond belief but has not, with regret, exposed the solitary inner strength of his greatest songs in their original perfect form.
Keith James, with a lifetime reputation of performing in this exact way and an undying love of the pure song, gives you a concert of this amazing material in the most intimate and sensitive way imaginable.
Amongst a concert of such songs as; Famous Blue Raincoat, Sisters of Mercy, Suzanne and Hallelujah, are also Poems by Federico Garcia Lorca that Keith has set to music; said to be Cohen’s greatest influence.
The concert will be held at the Hanger Farm Arts Centre on the 9th June 2016, 8:00pm – 10:30pm
