Lonestar Tavern, Mermaid Waters, QLD
From the star of the critically acclaimed 'Peace Train The Cat Stevens Story', Darren Coggan celebrates in concert 'Tea For The Tillerman' & 'Teaser & The Firecat', the two milestone albums that defined a generation and launched Cat Stevens as a global superstar of the 70's. These two captivating albums from Cat Stevens possess an air of mystery and unforced whimsy.
Gentle, heart rending songs that spoke to a generation, to millions of people, who, like Cat himself, were on a journey. With the release of 'Tea For The Tillerman' and 'Teaser & The Firecat', Cat Stevens demonstrated that he was very much in touch with his audience, along with the social attitudes and changes within modern culture of the time. He was no longer just entertaining his audience, he was reaching out to them and singing about them.
Relive the voice of a generation with songs the whole world sang along with including the timeless Moonshadow, Wild World, Peace Train, Where Do the Children Play, Father & Son, Morning Has Broken, and many more. 'Tea For The Tillerman' & 'Teaser & The Firecat', remarkably re-created live in their entirety by Darren Coggan. Every track from the Cat, back to back.
