Heartland Concert Association: John Denver Tribute Concert

The Heartland Concert Association season will open with Take Me Home, a John Denver Tribute with Jim Curry at 7 p.m. Tuesday, September 24 at the Park Rapids Area High School auditorium. Curry is not your usual “Vegas style” impersonator. His looks and his voice are simply a pleasant coincidence that captures the essence of John Denver’s music. Curry’s authentic delivery rolls out into the crowd as multi-platinum hits, like “Rocky Mountain High,” “Annie’s Song” and “Calypso,” fill the space. He believes that John Denver’s words still ring true in these difficult times of war and environmental crisis. Season ticket packets are available at Beagle and Wolf Books, Park Rapids; Thrifty White Drug, Walker; Northwoods Grocery, Nevis: and Headwaters School of Music, Bemidji. Additional funding has been provided in whole or in part by a Region 2 Arts Council Community Arts Support Grant through an appropriation by the MN Legislature, and the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund passed by MN voters November 4, 2008.
