Multi award winning performer, Darren Coggan, returns to his country roots with The Poems, Prayers & Promises of John Denver, delivering the vocal authenticity of one of the most passionate performers of all time.
In a personal reflection, Darren respectfully honours the indelible voice behind songs that the whole world sand many more.ang along with, such universal anthems 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
It is often said that John Denver was to the 70s, what Sinatra was to the 40s, Elvis to the 50s and The Beatles to the 60s. With a voice full of Colorado sunshine, John Denver melted the borders between folk, pop and country music, offering a warm, welcoming vision of what the 70’s could encompass.
Re-live the voice of a generation, in a celebration of one of the most inspiring and prolific singer songwriters of our time, remarkably re-created live, by Darren Coggan.
