jimcurrythumb1Tribute 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.

On September 5, 2009, Jim Curry reprises his tribute to this singer/songwriter at the Discovery Center Amphitheater.  The show will take you back to when “Rocky Mountain High” “Sunshine” “Calypso” and “Annie’s Song” topped the charts.
