Keith James: The Songs of Leonard Cohen
Enigmatic, mysterious and sub textural, songwriter Leonard Cohen is an unflinching character, with an exact sense of prose and a wry humour. Keith James; with a lifetime reputation of performing these songs, stripped back and as they were meant to be heard, gives you a concert of this amazing material in the most intimate and sensitive way imaginable. Alongside songs such as Famous Blue Raincoat, Sisters of Mercy, Suzanne and Hallelujah are also poems by Cohen's greatest influence, Frederico Garcia Lorca, which Keith has set to music.
