Keith James performs… the songs of Leonard Cohen

Thursday 3rd April

Doors at 7:30pm // Performance from 8pm

The most enigmatic, mysterious and sub textural songwriter the English speaking world has ever known. Revered and covered by the entire music community; Leonard Cohen’s exact sense of prose, his wry humour and his 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 the songs in their original perfect form.

Having now played over 200 of these critically acclaimed concerts across the UK, 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.
