The Songs of Leonard Cohen

Songs of Leonard Cohen - Trinity 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
