These remarkable songs - stripped back, desolate, naked and sensual
Enigmatic, mysterious and sub textural, songwriter Leonard Cohen was an unflinching character, with an exact sense of prose, wry humour and courage to wrestle with the unspoken, forgiving human frailty with the stroke of each line.
The chilling announcement of Leonard's passing marked the end of an era. His music befriended an entire generation. Within every line of his writing, he has been challenging us to listen more carefully, speak more thoughtfully, think more deeply and recognize our own fragility. A Man of Grace. Our World misses him very much!
With a lifetime reputation of performing in this exact way and an undying love of the 'pure song' Keith James gives you a concert 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 close to 400 concerts to well over 100,000 people. This has proved to be one of the greatest honours in Keith James' 40 year career in music. Keith lives in Powys, Wales and Andalucia, Spain
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 Who by Fire, Joan of Arc and Secret Life. Also included are Keith's dramatic and absorbing 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'
'Some of the most atmospheric and emotive music you will ever hear' The Independent

'an elegant and beautifully crafted reinterpretation of a great Artist's words' BBC Radio Scotland
'certainly the UK's most celebrated and evocative interpreter of golden music' The Guardian

'a sensitive and pleasingly understated delivery, all the better that the songs might speak for themselves' Acoustic Magazine
For over 30 years Boo Hewerdine has been considered one of the UK's finest singer-songwriters. As lead singer of seminal band, The Bible through to his subsequent solo work and long-time collaboration with the incredible Eddi Reader he has become something of a national treasure. He is in demand as a writer, producer and performer.
His latest album ‘Before’ was recorded with supreme Danish multi-instrumentalist Gustaf Ljungren Boo’s only collaborator on the set. Whilst this is an album for the times (that echoes the darkness and confusion in Europe surrounding it’s pre-Brexit conception) ‘Before’ is also a timely reminder of the power of simplicity, Hewerdine’s lyricism set to a subtle backdrop of vintage instrumentation.
On this tour he will be singing songs from his new album and his extensive back catalogue. A naturally gifted raconteur his gigs are always a total joy.
Edwina Hayes numbers Michael Parkinson and Perez Hilton among her fans. Her beautifully written songs, charming stage presence and voice of an angel have won her a reputation as a true natural talent of gentle folk-americana. She has opened numerous shows for Jools Holland and Van Morrison and the title track of her album Pour Me A Drink was covered by Nanci Griffith who calls her 'the sweetest voice in England'.
Her cover of the Randy Newman song Feels Like Home was featured in the Cameron Diaz film My Sister's Keeper and has since had over five million plays on You Tube
'Haunting honeyed solo songwriter.' The Guardian
'A very talented young lady.' Michael Parkinson
'The sweetest voice in England.' Nanci Griffith
Like the expressionistic brushstrokes of a landscape painter, Katie Spencer conjures vivid landscapes through the medium of song. Curating intimate studies using her unique finger picked acoustic guitar style and an assured warm voice, Spencer underlines the sense of space that surrounds her home by the sea in Hornsea, East Yorkshire.
The striking imagery that rings through her ethereal songs creates a universe of sound and storytelling. Her mesmeric live performances have seen her play world-renowned stages, at the likes of Cambridge Folk Festival and Celtic Connections as she assembles a dedicated fanbase from all corners of the country.
This year saw Spencer embarking on a UK tour in celebration of her brand-new album Weather Beaten, a flawless and flowing ten track journey that encapsulates her intimate live performance style. Produced by Spencer Cozens, long-time collaborator of John Martyn and Joan Armatrading, the sound of the album is clear and bright, bringing a precision and boldness reminiscent of the best ‘ECM’ modern jazz albums which naturally pairs with the warm and hazy folk sound that envelops Katie’s style.
