Johnny Coppin who is appearing at The Mission Theatre tomorrow evening, from 8pm, is well known as a folk singer, songwriter, guitarist and keyboard player.

Since then he has become established as a solo performer and composer.

He not only has the ability to write memorable songs as well as composing great tunes but has set the works of many of Gloucestershire's poets to music including Laurie Lee with whom he collaborated on an anthology of work.
