Seasons greetings music lovers, time to “Deck the shed with bits of wattle” and join award winning performer, Darren Coggan, as he celebrates the joy of being Home For Christmas, through a collection of songs and stories that embrace the festive spirit of Christmas in Australia.
Home For Christmas is a fun and engaging performance full of laughter and sing-a-long songs that promises to be the gift of the season. As his thoughts turn to home, strumming a guitar, Darren reimagines much loved Christmas favourites, reminiscing warm childhood memories of family and friends.
Joining Darren on stage for some Christmas frivolity, a very special appearance from Santa Claus himself, as he drops by to check that the ‘Boomers’ are all set to go on his Australian run.
However you celebrate the Christmas season, whether with a fond memory of a loved one, a longing for someone far away or in the company of family and friends, may you find peace and indeed be Home For Christmas.
Darren Coggan is one of Australia’s most exciting and diverse artists, a masterful storyteller with a knack of weaving fascinating and perceptive tales through his songs. From humble beginnings, strumming a guitar by ‘the ‘Bidgee’ river in his beloved hometown of Wagga Wagga, to selling out The Sydney Opera House Concert Hall with Peace Train The Cat Stevens Story, Darren has forged a unique, diverse career that has seen him embrace the Australian Country Music, Musical Theatre and Television industries with aplomb.
“It was the boy from Wagga Wagga, Darren Coggan, who emerged as the evening’s king of hearts. Coggan has a fresh, powerful, expressive voice, and he just oozed style.” THE AUSTRALIAN
