The Songs of Leonard Cohen

Songs of Leonard Cohen - Players 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

As a gesture of belief in the possibility of harmony and understanding within all of us interwoven in today’s World CONCERT FOR A CHANGING WORLD Unique and timeless songs of vision, question and change Words that reverberate with the tenacity of human spirit in these current times of brooding disquiet, fractured societies and civil unrest. Songs that have changed history and moved millions of people to do things they never thought possible. Included in this concert are songs written by Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, Cat Stevens, Nina Simone, Leonard Cohen and Keith For this concert, the original living writers of each song have been asked to compose powerful brand new verses that stand proud in the 21st century against this current wave of crises. Keith, a life-long devotee of emotional performance, approaches each of these songs with fresh courage and passion and includes all of the new verses – chilling to listen to! So much has changed, although so little has changed. Everything is moving so fast and yet everything is moving so slowly. Also included are both versions of Keith’s song I can see and a 2020 re-write of his song Life in a Western World ‘The world needs powerful songs as much as ever. 'I Can See', certainly hits its target. Keith clearly sees the danger of living in a post-truth, self-serving society, but he sees hope too!
