James Keelaghan Background

James Keelaghan was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and his Canadian roots helped inspire some of his greatest songs ever, such as "Kiri's Piano", which lamented the plight of Japanese Canadians in internment camps during the Second World War. Keelaghan didn't always know that he would grow up to be an esteemed musician. He originally went to the University of Calgary in order to study, even though he had been a huge fan of musical theatre and folk music growing up. Eventually, Keelaghan realized that music was his true calling, so he started to focus on creating moving songs that resonated with his audience.

Keelaghan released his debut album, Timelines, in 1987, and the album was so beautifully done that it immediately started to receive rave reviews all over the world. The album focused on historical events, such as the building of the Canadian Pacific Railroad and WWII. This album not only resonated with Canadians, but also with folk music fans on a global scale. From then on, Keelaghan was a staple performer in the folk music scene. He has performed everywhere from major folk music festivals and concert halls to small and intimate venues.

In the 2000s, Keelaghan started to rake in prestigious awards for his groundbreaking folk tunes. He won first place in the 2003 USA Songwriting Competition, and in 2004 he scored the highly sought after Juno Award. Keelaghan has also collaborated with major musicians like Oscar Lopez, Hugh McMillan, and Stephen Fearing. No matter who he collaborates with or where he performs, Keelaghan's talent always shines through. His beautiful ballads are truly timeless, and even though they always sound great through your stereo, they sound extraordinarily glorious when performed live.
