Experience NH’s Fall Foliage as we travel to the White Mountains of NH during peak foliage season to see one of the most realistic Tribute shows to ever come across our stage! The legendary John Denver evokes memories of an era in music which was both inspiring and influential. His music is a combination of romance -Annie’s Song; folk – Leavin’ on a Jet Plane; country – Thank God I’m a Country Boy; and environmentalist – Calypso. 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 John Denver guitar accompanist Steve Weisberg, resembles John both physically and musically, is carrying on the tradition honoring this colossal music icon. Ted brings the great compositions and hits of John Denver to audiences via a quality interpreter of Denver’s music. Ted Vigil’s Rocky Mountain High is, indeed, a high!
