Multi award-winning performer, Darren Coggan, will be returning to his country roots with a new show at Blue Mountains Theatre on Saturday, February 4.
According to many, John Denver was to the ‘70s, what Sinatra was to the ‘40s, Elvis to the ‘50s and The Beatles to the ‘60s. Melting the borders between country, pop and folk music, Denver’s music offered a warm, welcoming vision of what the ‘70s could encompass with a voice full of Colorado sunshine.
Now, in his show ‘The Poems, Prayers & Promises of John Denver’, Coggan will be bringing Denver’s songs back to the stage.
The show will be a display of Coggan’s own personal reflection, respectfully honouring the indelible voice of anthems such as ‘Take Me Home Country Roads’, ‘Rocky Mountain High’, ‘Annie’s Song’, ‘Perhaps Love’, ‘Thank God I’m A Country Boy’, ‘Calypso’, ‘Leaving On A Jet Plane’ and many more.
For fans of Coggan or of Denver, this incredible show is not to be missed.
‘The Poems, Prayers & Promises of John Denver’, starring Darren Coggan will be on at Blue Mountains Theatre on Saturday, February 4 at 7.30pm. Tickets are $65. For more information or to book, visit bluemountainstheatre.com.au.
