The Songs of Leonard Cohen: Concert by Keith James
Celebrated singer-songwriter Keith James presents the songs and poetic sources of Leonard Cohen in an intimate style.
As part of this concert of Cohen’s best-known songs, including ‘Famous Blue Raincoat’, ‘Sisters of Mercy’, ‘Suzanne’ and ‘Hallelujah’, are poems by Federico García Lorca set to music. Lorca is said to be Cohen’s greatest influence. The concert will also include songs from Leonard Cohen’s Album You Want it Darker, released only 19 days before his death.
This is a Durham Book Festival event organised in collaboration with the Centre for Poetry and Poetics.
