James Keelaghan (born October 28, 1959) is a folk singer-songwriter. Born in Calgary, Alberta, Keelaghan is now based in Perth, Ontario. Many of the lyrics in his songs display a concern about social problems and justice in society. Keelaghan’s lilting baritone voice, driving rhythm guitar, and a sense of scene and narrative result in his ability to bridge traditional folk music with roots revival and Celtic music. In 1994, he won the Juno Award for Roots & Traditional Album of the Year – Solo for My Skies.
