MARBLEHEAD — James Keelaghan, considered one of Canada’s finest singer-songwriters, performs at the me&thee coffeehouse Friday night. Sophie Buskin opens the show at 8 p.m.
Keelaghan creates his songs with brilliantly defined craftsmanship infused with his own artistic vision. He is, without a doubt, one of the most distinctive and readily identifiable voices of not only the Canadian scene, but as a member of the international singer-songwriter community. His songs have enlightened and enthralled and have been embraced by audiences around the world. His masterful storytelling over the course of many albums has been the bedrock of his success, earning Keelaghan his share of nominations and awards, and acclaim from Australia to Scandinavia.
