A Rocky Mountain Christmas

Fri, Nov. 30: Jim Curry's Tribute to John Denver & Holiday Favorites

Jim Curry's A Rocky Mountain ChristmasMADISON, FL – The North Florida Community College Artist Series is proud to present A Rocky Mountain Christmas - Jim Curry's Tribute to the Music of John Denver & Holiday Favorites on Friday, Nov. 30, 2018 at 7 p.m. at NFCC’s Van H. Priest Auditorium. A family holiday tradition comes to life as Curry performs the music from John Denver’s many Christmas Television specials and Christmas Music collections. Enjoy Memorable melodies that speak to the heart of the holidays like “Silver Bells”, “Silent Night” and “O Holly Night” along with John’s own “Christmas for Cowboys,” “Noel, Christmas Eve”, “Aspenglow” and “The Peace Carol.”

Enjoy these holiday favorites along with John Denver’s all-time hits like “Rocky Mountain High”, “Sunshine On My Shoulders” and “Back Home Again” as Jim Curry and his band “fill up your senses” in this heart-felt seasonal show that pays tribute to the music of one of the most beloved singer/songwriters ever to grace the stage.

Curry, whose voice was heard in the CBS-TV movie Take Me Home: The John Denver Story, has performed Denver’s music in sold out shows throughout the country and has emerged as today’s top performer of Denver’s vast legacy of multi-platinum hits. His uncanny ability to mirror John’s voice and clean-cut look takes you back to the time when “Rocky Mountain High,” “Sunshine,” “Calypso” and “Annie’s Song” topped the charts, and his popular music had the heartfelt message of caring for the earth and caring for each other.

Curry began his music career writing and performing the opening song, “The Time of Your Life” for his senior play. The song was then voted to be the 1975 class song and Jim was awarded a Rotary Scholarship to study music in college. Even at this early stage in his life Jim’s natural voice resembled that of singer/songwriter John Denver. Embracing the similarities, Jim continued to sing and specialize in the songs of John Denver, sharing John’s positive messages of love, humanity and environmental awareness.
