The legendary John Denver evokes memories of an era in music, which was both inspiring and influential.  He recorded nearly 300 songs, 200 of which he composed, which led to 12 gold and 4 platinum albums; he was also awarded an Emmy and two Grammy’s.  He was a brilliant song writer and a truly gifted performer. Ted Vigil, a man who, according to long-time Denver guitar accompanist Steve Weisberg, closely resembles John both physically and musically, is carrying on the tradition honoring this colossal music icon.  Steve now accompanies Ted and is happy to once again be bringing the great compositions and hits of John Denver to audiences via a quality interpreter of Denver’s music.

Ted is not an impersonator, but rather sings a tribute to this great man.  People miss John Denver; Ted Vigil is doing his best to pay homage.  His gift for the music and polished and energetic performing style presents a warm and delightful evening through some of the world’s most popular music.

Performances are Friday, April 25 at 8:00 pm, Saturday, April 26 at 2:00 pm and 8:00 pm and Sunday, April 27 at 2:00 pm in the Marcus Center’s Vogel Hall.
