Remember the days of Cat Stevens?
The name brings back a thousand memories – dark eyes, a winning voice and songs the whole world sang along to; Moonshadow, Wild World, Peace Train, Where Do the Children Play, Father and Son, Morning Has Broken.
The songs have become bookmarks in our lives, deeply personal, as if they were written especially for us.
At the Pilbeam Theatre’s February Morning Melodies, theatregoers can re-live the voice of a generation, in a celebration of one of the most inspiring and prolific singer songwriters of our time, sung with remarkable authenticity by one of Australia’s most exciting artists, Darren Coggan.
Get on board the Peace Train and ‘Remember the Days of Cat Stevens’ as Darren Coggan traces the path of a man who never stopped wondering about how to make the world a better place.
Coggan, a multi award winning singer in his own right, created Peace Train – the Cat Stevens Story more than ten years ago.
That show received critical and audience acclaim throughout Australia and the UK.
Coggan amazed many with a quality of voice that closely resembled the original.
Rockhampton Regional Council Communities and Heritage Portfolio spokesperson Cr Drew Wickerson encouraged people come along to Morning Melodies.
‘This is a great way to kick off the Morning Melodies year at the Pilbeam Theatre,” Cr Wickerson said.
