If you’re a fan of John Denver’s many songs about nature, hope, and love, you’re invited to an evening dedicated to recalling his music, his spirit, and his life.
Long-time Columbus musician Bill Cohen plans to sing more than 20 of Denver’s most popular and compelling songs, backed up by a tight-knit top-notch group of fellow singers and instrumentalists. Many of the songs will be done concert-style, but on many others, the audience will be invited to join in.
Among the tunes on the night’s playlist are: Rocky Mountain High, Jet Plane, Sunshine on My Shoulder, Annie’s Song, Thank God I’m a Country Boy, Country Roads, and others.
This unique show is set for Saturday March 16 at 7 p.m. at the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Columbus, 93 W. Weisheimer Road.
Backing up Bill will be harmony vocalists Joanne Blum and Joe Lambert, plus banjo wizard Carl Yaffey.
Admission is free. Donations will be welcomed, with half of the proceeds going to the Care and Share Time Bank. That’s a Clintonville-based non-profit project that allows members to collect time credits for providing services to others, so the time credits that are earned can be used to receive services from others. It’s like bartering but on a grand scale.
