James Keelaghan is a poet laureate of the folk and roots music world. He has gone about his work with a combination of passion, curiosity, intent and intensity. His masterful story telling has earned him acclaim from Australia to Scandinavia. His songs often explore the history of his homeland of which he is clearly proud and from which he draws much of his inspiration. This fascination with history has inspired many of his best known songs. For example, "Kiri's Piano" re-visits one of Canada's hitherto darkest chapters of Japanese internment camps during World War II. Other well known songs from him include "Fires Of Calais", "Cold Missouri Waters", and "Hillcrest Mine."

Admiration and respect for his work amongst his peers is reflected in the words of David Francey who recently stated that "James Keelaghan is a voice in contemporary Canadian songwriting that has helped us define who we are as a people. He writes with great humanity and honesty, with an eye to the past and a vision of the future. He has chronicled his times with powerful and abiding songs, with heart and eyes wide open."

"House of Cards," his 11th cd, is Keelaghan at his very best. Topping Folk DJ and top ten lists for 2009, he delivers with his signature voice and songs that mean something. There's ample evidence of why he has been called Canada's finest singer-songwriter and have been awarded the Juno Award from Canada's Academy Of Recording Arts and Science. The CD includes 10 new originals, some of them co-writes with such folk luminaries as David Francey, Karine Polwart and Rose Cousins. This CD is one of his best yet.

James Keelaghan connects with his audiences with a powerful vocal delivery and a commanding stage presence. March 12 will be a memorable Stone Soup evening.

He's great, writes great 'story songs'...Saw him in Dartmouth, over here in England, a few years back now..with his great friend and wonderful fiddle player, Oliver Schroer. So sad that Oliver's no longer here, but at least he left his music.

I hope the gig goes well and everyone enjoys themselves, including James. :0)
