Event description


On Saturday, July 8, 2017, Music in the Mountains favorite, Jim Curry, returns with A Tribute to the Music of John Denver, with special debuting guest, Taylor Made, the James Taylor Tribute Band. It's a night to pay tribute to the most iconic 70's music legends who raised our environmental awareness and commitment to take better care of our planet; an homage to and celebration of the mission of the Southern California Mountains Foundation.

Thank you for your support!
