The Keith James Songbook – A long awaited concert tour

Keith James

A unique voice within the fabric of music in the UK

Mature, insightful and intriguing – emotionally giving and honest

Spanning the past 50 years, Keith has performed thousands of enthusiastically received shows in Arts Centres and Theatres throughout the UK. Thoughtful, interpretive concerts devoted to the writing of visionary Songwriters and Poets who he has always admired.

The success of these concerts has been such, that it has somewhat eclipsed Keith’s own material (which has mostly been heard on his twelve album releases) so the writing and release of this new and significant body of work Word Paintings has given Keith, and those alongside him the confidence to open a door and let this treasure chest of original songs be heard.

The songs from Word Paintings, a stand-alone, much championed, new collection, are at the heart of this concert, set amongst the characterful and fearless songs from Can You Imagine (2020), the vital commentary of Paradise Lost (2019) and the poetic imagery of Message From The Gods (2017), even some songs that date way back through his music year career. The best collection of Keith’s original material in one concert – which is by no means just music. There is a ‘chatting late into the night at a Taverna’ feel about the backstories and the embryonic seed of inspiration to each of the songs.
