Keith James in Concert: The Songs of Leonard Cohen

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

Enigmatic, mysterious and sub textural, songwriter Leonard Cohen was an unflinching character, with an exact sense of prose, wry humour and the courage to wrestle with the unspoken, forgiving human frailty with the stroke of each line.

His music befriended an entire generation; Challenging us to listen more carefully, think more deeply and recognize our own fragility. He has left the richest legacy of any Songwriter.

With a lifetime reputation of performing in this exact way and an undying 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: Famous Blue Raincoat, Sisters of Mercy, Suzanne, and Hallelujah.

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

‘Keith James’ Concert was truly memorable. My tears started as soon as he introduced the first song, and I came away thinking the human spirit will not be defeated. Currently on tour across the UK. Catch him if you can. He is such a lovely human being and so talented’ The Hay Festival

Doors open: 18:50
