The Songs of Leonard Cohen

Songs of Leonard Cohen - Colchester Arts Center Gig Poster

This wonderful Tower of Songs - stripped back and desolate

Enigmatic and sub textural, 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 with the brush of each line.

His music befriended an entire generation and so the announcement of his passing has truly marked the end of an era. He challenged us to listen more carefully, speak more thoughtfully, think more deeply and recognize our own humanity.. A Man of Grace. This world will miss him very much..

With a reputation of performing in this exact way and with an undying love of the ‘pure song’ Keith James gives you 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.

Amongst a concert of Cohen’s well known songs, including Famous Blue Raincoat, Sisters of Mercy, Suzanne and Hallelujah are also poems by Federico Garcia Lorca that Keith James has set to music. Lorca is said to be Cohen’s greatest influence. Additionally, songs from Leonard Cohen’s Album ‘You want it Darker’ released only 10 days before his death – produced by his son, Adam..

‘Some of the most atmospheric and emotive music you will ever hear’  The Independent
‘Keith James has become a pillar of trust. A sublimely intimate and engaging voice’  Sunday Times
‘an elegant and beautifully crafted reinterpretation of a great Artist’s words’  BBC Radio Scotland
‘certainly the UK’s most celebrated and evocative interpreter of golden music’  The Guardian
‘All the tears of time are shed in a few brief lines’  Times Literary Supplement
‘a sensitive and pleasingly understated delivery, all the better that the songs might speak for themselves’  Acoustic Magazine

DUENDE! The Poetry of Federico Garcia Lorca. A unique and breath-taking concert of Spanish Poetry set to music The haunting and exotic poetry of the most celebrated writers in the Spanish Language: Federico Garcia Lorca, Isabel Allende, Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Pablo Neruda. Their dramatic and sensual poetry, performed as Songs and meticulously set to Keith's rich, daring and fiery Classical guitar, in a way that embraces the very fabric of these beautiful words, both surreal and romantic, until every tear is shed, every picture caught. There is a huge resurgence of interest in the life and literary output of Federico Garcia Lorca. Yerma, one of his most rich and powerful dramas has recently taken the west end by storm with Billie Piper taking the lead role. The anniversary of the Spanish Civil War has noticed almost all of Europe looking back on Lorca’s poetry and dramas as their concepts and words pull us inwards like a cyclone, only to then be standing face to face with the very same human frailties – just 80 years on.. Keith James is one of this country's most cherished concert artists. Well known for his ability to bring depth and vibrancy to his interpretations. He has performed over 2000 concerts celebrating the work of Nick Drake, Lorca, Dylan Thomas, Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen.This concert is sung both in English and Spanish and mostly features the Classical and Flamenco guitar. Press reviews for Keith’s new Album ‘Tenderness Claws’ – a collection of amazing poetry set to music. ‘The Poems are treated to some fine arrangements, lifting each of them to another level’ Northern Sky ‘A five star Album by anyone’s standards’ Fatea Magazine ‘Finely crafted and played, exquisitely produced and highly recommended’ Folking.com ‘A remarkable array of sound to accompany remarkable words’ R2 Magazine
