Celebrating the original Cat

Remember the days of Cat Stevens?

Do Moonshadow, Wild World, Peace Train, Where Do the Children Play, Father and Son, Morning Has Broken and Matthew and Son evoke memories that have become bookmarks in your life, of the deeply personal, as if they were written especially for you.

Then take the opportunity to relive 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.

Star of the critically acclaimed production, ‘Peace Train – The Cat Stevens Story’, Coggan has spent the past ten years inspiring audiences with this critically acclaimed portrait; playing in the most prestigious theatres across Australia, including the Sydney Opera House concert hall and, most recently, to standing ovations in concert halls throughout the United Kingdom.

“I had the privilege of being invited to London to meet with the great Cat Stevens in 2007,” says Coggan.

“I heard firsthand some of the many anecdotes and stories that I have enjoyed sharing with our audiences in ‘Peace Train’.

“In this new production I want our audiences to experience what it might have been like to hear Cat Stevens at the height of his career: a cosmic concert experience of Cat Stevens’ biggest hits

Get on board the Peace Train and remember the days of Cat Stevens, as Coggan traces the path of a man who never stopped wondering about how to make the world a better place.

Celebrate the music of Cat Stevens at the Maclean Bowling Club on Saturday November 7; doors open at 7.30pm; tickets are on sale at the club.

It is a seated event with Covid regulations applicable.
