Little Fire John Cooper Podcast



In this podcast I speak with my good friend John Cooper a very talented songwriter from Irvine, Ayrshire, we talk about his life with music, songwriting and some projects he's been involved with through out the years. Featuring music from John Cooper ( One of the Few which was covered by the legendary American songwriter Jimmy Webb on his 1982 album Angel Heart), Anji by the extremely influential guitarist Davy Graham and some poetry from John Milligan who was a poet and miner from Dreghorn in Ayrshire also with an arrangement by John Cooper of one John Milligans songs.

Listening to this podcast I found myself being transported on a journey where I gained knowledge and insights into songwriting , music and composition based upon the unique life experience of John Cooper. His personality , dedication and humility can't fail to touch the heart and soul of anyone who loves music and life . I do hope others share this podcast a masterclass really which brings past present and future full circle. For all with poetic , musical and song writing aspirations you will gain inspiration from a very humble man
willing to share his talent with everyone. And I defy anyone to listen to John Milligan's poems and John C's arrangements of his work not to shed a tear -I did I felt I was able to relive a part of my own family's history - a shared human experience - THANK YOU ...from a miners daughter, grand daughter,able to relive memories of Scottish village life - what can I say. You are a legend -Rosie Wright.
