Are you a fan of Leonard Cohen - the Canadian singer-songwriter and one of the most distinctive voices of 1970’s pop music? Then look no further than the Torch Theatre on Friday 7 July as Keith James in Concert - The Songs of Leonard Cohen will transport you back to the good old days.

In the Concert, described by The Independent as ‘some of the most atmospheric and emotive music you will ever hear,’ Keith James gives you a performance of Cohen’s amazing material in the most intimate and sensitive way imaginable, 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 200,000 people. This has proved to be one of the greatest honours in Keith James’ 40-year career in music.

The Concert begins with ANTHEM - ‘There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in’ - Cohen’s most memorable and visionary line from his song ANTHEM. If ever there was a sentence in modern poetry to reflect on and give hope and understanding to us all, it is this line.

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 James in Concert - The Songs of Leonard Cohen will visit the Torch Theatre on Friday 7 July at 7.30pm. Tickets are £18. Tickets can be purchased from the Box Office at the Torch Theatre on 01646 695267 or by clicking here.
