“Unique and timeless songs of vision, question and change”
Keith James writes: “Words that reverberate with the tenacity of human spirit in these current times of brooding disquiet, fractured societies and the fear of Nature. A number of the Songs written in the 20th century have changed history and moved millions of people to do things they never thought possible. Now everything is moving so fast and yet, so little has changed.
Included in this concert are songs written by, Joan Baez, Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, Cat Stevens, Maya Angelou, Leonard Cohen and Neil Young; Also included are many of Keith’s songs from his 2020 Album ‘Paradise lost’ and from his brand new 2021 Album ‘Can you imagine’
For this concert, many of the songs have been given a powerful brand new verse that stands proud against this current wave of crises.
Keith, a life-long devotee of emotional performance, approaches each of these songs with fresh courage and passion, provoking both reflection and reconciliation.”
Pandemic policies. This information will be updated as things change.
Update: April 2022
- Face masks: In the Main Hall, on the ground floor, these are recommended at all times, but are optional. Anyone who sits upstairs in the balcony MUST wear a face mask – with NO exceptions (not even those who are exempt). This is to allow people who are clinically vulnerable to have a place to sit where seats are naturally separated, so: (a) to provide a place for people who want to be as distanced as possible from others, and with anyone nearby wearing a mask; (b) as virus particles when airborne are generally heavier than air, this helps to mitigate the risk of transmission from people sitting in the balcony to audience members below.
- The windows and doors of the venue will be open, allowing fresh air to be constantly moving through. Although we have heating, this might mean that the ambient temperature is a little cooler than some might like, and audience members should dress accordingly.
- Please, if you can, take a Lateral Flow test before coming to the Arts Centre, and if this is positive, don’t come. These tests aim to pick up anyone who is infectious at the moment of testing, so please take the test as late as possible on the same day before coming to the Arts Centre. If you test positive, a refund or transfer of your ticket to another event can be arranged, if you let us know before the start of the event, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
