Peace Train is a night of music and story telling set to inspire and ignite audiences, finding the man behind the music and the stories behind the songs we all know so well. You know, little numbers like Moonshadow, Wild World, Peace Train, Where Do the Children Play, Father & Son, Morning Has Broken

“2015 is set to be our biggest year to date aboard the Peace Train,” said Darren Coggan.

“We start our year in Tamworth at the Country Music festival, move into Sydney’s State Theatre on Valentine’s Day for a Valentine’s Day celebration of love and peace and then roll out across the country through Tasmania, WA, Darwin, QLD, NSW, Vic and SA. This will be our third lap around Australia aboard the Peace Train and it’s been a wonderful journey.”
