From the star of 'Peace Train - The Cat Stevens Story' FIRE & RAIN
The James Taylor Songbook
Performed by Darren Coggan

1970, it’s the dawn of a new era, the sixties have gone and left in their wake, is a darker, disillusioned world, a world which is searching for answers. The Beatles announce that they have disbanded, Jimi Hendrix & Janis Joplin both die of drug related excess, but amidst these ashes, every time you turn on the radio, you can’t escape the soothing, intensely personal reflections of a song called ‘Fire & Rain’. For all those who heard it for the first time, they knew that something had changed, the era of the singer-songwriter had arrived and James Taylor was crowned it’s king.

Darren Coggan, award winning performer and star of the critically acclaimed show ‘Peace Train - The Cat Stevens Story’, takes us on an eloquent journey through the songbook of one of the most magnetic figures in the music world, articulating moments of pain and joy, tragedy and triumph, fire & rain.

“For over forty years, James Taylor’s songs have resonated with people everywhere” said Darren, “He is undoubtedly one of the most influential singer-songwriters of our time. I remember listening to his music as a kid, he moved me then and still moves me now.” 

Heartache, despair and confusion are common themes for artists to mix into their creative palette, however, few musicians have experienced those feelings more intensely than James Taylor, a modern-day troubadour, who channelled his self-destructive impulses into some of the most memorable songs of our time; How Sweet It Is To Be Loved By You, Country Road, Carolina In My Mind, Sweet Baby James, You’ve Got A Friend, Shower The People, Fire & Rain and many more.

James Taylors’ songs testify to the beauty and redemptive power of music.
