The Songs of Leonard Cohen
Date(s) - 23/03/2023
7:30 pm - 9:45 pm
Landmark Arts Centre
Remarkable songs – stripped back, honest, naked and sensual.
‘Some of the most atmospheric and emotive music you will ever hear’ The Independent
Enigmatic, mysterious and sub textural, songwriter Leonard Cohen was an unflinching character, with an exact sense of prose, wry humour and the courage to wrestle with the unspoken, forgiving human frailty and indulgence with the stroke of each word.
Included in the concert are Cohen’s well-known songs: Famous Blue Raincoat, Sisters of Mercy, Suzanne, and Hallelujah. Alongside his rarer and profound writing such as If it be your will, Joan of Arc and Secret Life. Also included are Keith’s dramatic performances based on the work of Federico Garcia Lorca – Cohen’s greatest influence. Keith has also transcribed into song one of Leonard’s poems from his collection ‘Book of longing’ written whilst on retreat during the 1990s.
‘Keith James has become a pillar of trust. A sublimely intimate and engaging voice’ Sunday Times
