On Wednesday 24th October The Watermark are delighted to present
Keith James in concert
The songs of Leonard Cohen
Each song stripped back – desolate, naked and sensual
The most enigmatic, mysterious and sub textural songwriter the English speaking world has ever known. Revered and covered by the entire music community; Leonard Cohen’s exact sense of prose, his wry humour and his courage to wrestle with the unspoken. Forgiving human frailty with the brush of each line.
His recent spectacular world tour of stadium venues has been successful beyond belief but has not, with regret, exposed the solitary inner strength of the songs in their original perfect form.
Keith James; with a lifetime reputation of performing in this exact way and an undying love of the pure song gives you a concert of this amazing material in the most intimate and sensitive way imaginable.
Also included are Poems by Federico Garcia Lorca and Leonard Cohen that Keith has set to music.
‘certainly the UK’s most celebrated and evocative interpreter of golden music’ The Guardian
‘Some of the most atmospheric and emotive music you will ever hear’ The Independent
‘Keith James has become a pillar of trust. A sublimely intimate and engaging voice’ Sunday Times
‘a sensitive and pleasingly understated delivery, all the better that the songs might speak for themselves’ Acoustic Magazine
Tickets: £12// Conc: £10. Performance starts at 8pm.

“I got near the front just in time to see the kind of explosive team effort that left me exhilarated. The atmosphere really was electric and the anticipation all but touchable. Treat yourself, go see them soon” – South West Music Review.
“The best moment of my wedding day after saying ‘I do’ to Eamonn was dancing the night away to Joey The Lips. Our friends are still talking about their brilliant show. Unmissable entertainment” – Ruth Langsford (Holmes)
