HE WOULD never have cut it as Henry John Deutschendorf Jr, but as John Denver, he charmed the world with 'Take Me Home, Country Roads', 'Annie's Song', 'Rocky Mountain High', and 'Thank God I'm a Country Boy' - all of which are now undisputed classics.
Indeed the Colorado state legislature also adopted "Rocky Mountain High" as one of its two state songs in 2007, while in Ireland, Galway based singer-songwriter and broadcaster Marc Roberts has earned critical and public acclaim for his A Tribute To The Music of John Denver show, which he brings to the Town Hall Theatre on Saturday November 4.
The show, which marks the 20th anniversary of Denver's tragic death in an airplane crash in October 1997, is a multimedia journey through Denver's life and music. It will also see Marc joined on-stage by musical director Terry Byrne, along with special guests Máirín Fahy on fiddle and multi instrumentalist Yvonne Fahy.
A Tribute To The Music of John Denver has previously toured Britain, Germany. Belgium, Australia, Tasmania, and Denver's home town of Aspen, Colorado. For tickets contact the Town Hall (091 - 569777, www.tht.ie ).
