I started playing guitar at age 14, motivated by the desire to entertain campers (and the girl’s staff members) around the campfires at YMCA camp, taking pointers from anyone and everyone kind enough to offer.
I played folk and acoustic venues in the Chicago area, earning my way through college. I saw two John Denver shows during my college years in the early 70’s, both times at the McCormick Place.
The most compelling aspect of both shows was the sense of closeness, the connection between John Denver on stage, and every member of the audience. It was like being back around that campfire of years before, sharing songs with good friends.
That’s the type of show I want and need to play, intimate, close, connected…
This not an impersonation show, rather a sharing of his songs and message in the context of his life and world events.
