The Songs of Leonard Cohen
There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in - if ever there was a sentence in modern poetry to reflect on and give hope and understanding to us all, it is this line from Cohen’s Anthem.
Enigmatic, mysterious and sub textural, songwriter 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.
Within every line of his writing, he has been challenging us to listen more carefully, speak more thoughtfully, think more deeply and recognise our own vulnerability. Our World misses him very much.
Keith James performs this amazing material in the most intimate and sensitive way, exposing the solitary inner strength of his greatest songs in their original perfect form. Keith has performed an extensive tour of this concert in Theatres and Arts Centres across the UK, giving over 550 concerts to more than 150,000 people.
