to the Mountains
Headlining the open mountain-air
show at the Big Bear Discovery Center Amphitheater will be returning favorite, Jim Curry, Tribute to Music of John Denver. Welcome back to Music in the Mountains, Jim
Curry with wife Anne and talented Band!
Jim Curry’s uncanny
ability to mirror John Denver’s voice and clean-cut look takes you back to the
time when Sunshine, Calypso and Annie’s
Song topped the charts. Denver’s
popular music reflected the heartfelt message of his relationship with nature;
and indeed, one of his greatest pleasures in spending time outdoors.
