Inspired by his own family history, performer Darren Coggan connects us to an iconic part of our heritage. Personal and exceptional stories of Australians at war are woven into songs that provide an intimate perspective of the tales that have helped shape our nation. War Stories takes you on an insightful journey into the lives of the Australians behind the lines. We reminisce about the generation of women who stayed at home and kept the country running. We celebrate the mateship, humour and courage in the Gallipoli trenches. And we honour our Indigenous diggers, a story rarely told.
Awarded Heritage Song of the Year at the 37th Golden Guitar Awards, Darren’s beautiful performance brings a warmth and integrity to the narrative. War Stories is a salute to the Australian spirit and how we find the strength to shine in the most intense and heart-breaking situations. From the performer who brought you Peace Train: the Cat Stevens Story don’t miss Darren Coggan in this inspirational new work.
War Stories paints a vivid picture of Australia at War and is a hugely entertaining experience.
This is a must see for all Australians.
