    Music in the Mountains presents Jim Curry’s Tribute to the Music of John Denver at the Discovery Center. Concert #4 in the 2015 season.

    The music of the late John Denver is like an old friend, outlasting trends and standing the test of time.  Join acclaimed performer Jim Curry for this tribute to the music of one of the most beloved singer/songwriters ever to grace the stage.  His music raised our conscientiousness to work toward a sustainable future for our world environmentally, socially and politically.

    Tribute artist Jim Curry, whose voice was heard in the CBS-TV movie Take Me Home: The John Denver Story, has performed Denver’s music in sold out shows throughout the country and has emerged as today’s top performer of Denver’s vast legacy of multi-platinum hits.

    Jim will close Season 10 Music in the Mountains at the Big Bear Discovery Center Amphitheater.  Jim’s uncanny ability to mirror John’s voice and clean-cut look takes you back to the time when “Rocky Mountain High”, “Sunshine”, “Calypso”, and “Annie’s Song” topped the charts while his popular music delivered a heartfelt message that raised our environmental consciousness to care for our planet and each other.

    Gates and parking open at 5pm Concert starts at 6pm
