The 2013 debut of the JOHN DENVER Tribute was a huge success. John Fielder and the John Adams Band will return in 2014, this time at the elegant Buell Theatre. This year’s performance celebrates the 50th anniversary of America’s Wilderness Act and features new John Fielder wilderness photographs from Colorado and beyond! And John will tell a few funny and dramatic stories about his life exploring wilderness!
Photographs from Colorado to Alaska
The 2014 performance will feature Fielder’s images of wilderness areas in the National Wilderness Preservation System from Colorado to Alaska. He has photographed all of Colorado’s 43 areas including the MaroonBells-Snowmass and Mount Zirkel wildernesses. You will see breathtaking photographs under the full moon, and at sunset and sunrise of the Bridger and Popie Agie wildernesses in Wyoming’s Wind River Mountains. You will witness the Olympic coast of Washington state, the Sierra Nevada of California, Minnesota’s Boundary Waters, and the fiords of Alaska’s Inside Passage, all federally designated wilderness.
Photos Choreographed to the Music
With state of the art digital projectors, you will feel as if you are on the trail with John Fielder as he shares photographs from his 40-year career exploring mountain wilderness areas, river canyons, prairies, private ranches, national parks, and state and local parks and wildlife areas. Many
of the photographs have never been seen or published before.John will also discuss with the audience what they will see before many of the songs, and tell a story or two of his life in the backcountry!
Best John Denver Tribute Band in the World!
The John Adams Band only performs their tribute concerts the way John Denver did. John keeps the arrangements unchanged, which is possible through his dedicated group of musicians, whose goal it is to make every concert memorable and magical. Sharing his love and memories of John Denver, Adams weaves in stories of his personal encounters with Denver, bringing smiles, laughter and even some tears to his audiences.
Performance to Benefit Colorado Conservation Non-Profit Organizations!
Part of the profits from ticket sales return to organizations like the Wilderness Society, Sierra Club, and Conservation Colorado in order that they can continue their work to influence Congress to protect America’s remaining wildlands as new wilderness areas.
A Great Chance to Holiday Shop, Too
For holiday shoppers, the two John’s will be selling and signing copies of their books and CDs before, during intermission, and after the performance! Also for sale will be the 50th anniversary edition of John Fielder’s best-selling book, Mountain Ranges of Colorado, as well as the 50th Anniversary Colorado Wilderness Poster.
