The Poems, Prayers & Promises of John Denver
starring Darren Coggan
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 sang 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 and many more.
It is often said that John Denver was to the 70’s, what Sinatra was to the 40’s, Elvis
to the 50’s and The Beatles to the 60’s. 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 has a fresh, powerful, expressive voice, and he just oozed style.”
“Coggan’s musical story-telling is outstanding, as is his singing and playing.”
