HE WOULD never have cut it as Henry John Deutschendorf jr, but as John Denver, he charmed the world with now undisputed classics like 'Take Me Home, Country Roads', 'Annie's Song', 'Rocky Mountain High', and 'Thank God I'm a Country Boy'.
Indeed the Colorado state legislature adopted "Rocky Mountain High" as one of its two state songs in 2007, while in Ireland, singer-songwriter and broadcaster Marc Roberts has earned critical and public acclaim for his A Tribute To The Music of John Denver, which he brings to the Town Hall Theatre this Sunday at 8pm.
The show is a multimedia journey through the singer-songwriter's life and music. Marc will also be joined on-stage by musical director Terry Byrne, and special guests Kathy Crinion (with whom he released the hit single 'Love Again' ), Trad on the Prom's Máirín Fahy on fiddle, and multi-instrumentalist Yvonne Fahy.
Marc has toured A Tribute To The Music of John Denver in Britain, Germany, Belgium, Australia, Tasmania, and Denver's home town of Aspen, Colorado. Sri Lanka's Sunday Observer declared: "Denver's music had its second lease of life when Marc Roberts performed the hits with the same kind of emotion Denver used to deliver to his fans."
