Mining Cohen’s back catalogue

Rob George 12th Feb, 2019

THE ICONIC songs of Leonard Cohen will ring out at Huntingdon Hall when Keith James takes to the stage to pay tribute to the singer-songwriter.

Keith James in Concert – The Songs of Leonard Cohen is now in its eighth year and brings the music of the enigmatic and mysterious Cohen to life once more.

Born in Canada in 1934 into a Canadian-Jewish family, Cohen studied poetry in high school and developed a passion for the subject. During this time he also learnt to play the guitar.

During the 1950s and ‘60s, Cohen pursued a career as a writer, stemming from his high school passion, and it wasn’t until later in 1967 at the age of 33 he launched a music career

Keith has performed more than 400 of these concerts, regarding the opportunity as one of the greatest honours in his 40-year music career. The concert includes Cohen’s hits: Famous Blue Raincoat, Sisters of Mercy, Suzanne and Hallelujah alongside rarer and profound writing such as Who by Fire, Joan of Arc and Secret Life.

The show kicks off at 7.30pm next Friday (February 22) and tickets are £16.
