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 and 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 and 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 and rain.
