Jon Chandler in Concert Thursday, March 23rd, 7pm, Elks Crystal Hall 3rd floor

Three-time winner of the prestigious Spur Award from the Western Writers of America, True West Magazine's Best Western Musician.

"Jon Chandler is part Wallace Stegner, part Jack Schaefer. He’s part Bruce Springsteen, and part Rambling Jack Elliott. He’s part William F. Cody, and part Cole Younger. Yet he’s distinctively original, a poet laureate of the American West of past, present and future." - Johnny D. Boggs

Jon Chandler is a three time winner of the prestigious Spur Award from the Western Writers of America. Linwood, his moody examination of Doc Holliday’s life won the Spur for Best Song in 2009, while his tribute to Wyoming’s Hole in the Wall country, Morning Star Moon, received the award in 2012. His novel The Spanish Peaks received the WWA’s Medicine Pipe Bearer Award (Spur Award) for Best First Novel, and he was named True West Magazine’s Best Western Musician. Wyoming Wind, A Novel of Tom Horn, was a finalist for the Colorado Book Award.

A seventh-generation Coloradan, Jon’s music and stories reflect his heritage, and his eight CDs, two novels, two non-fiction works and myriad short stories and nonfiction articles are collected by western lifestyle aficionados worldwide. He hosted the iconic monthly concert series America’s Soul Live at the Olde Town Pickin’ Parlor in Arvada, Colorado for 16 years until the pandemic caused its demise. Homage, his new recording of cover songs that have influenced his writing and singing, was released to exceptional reviews.

I’ve been Jon Chandler’s biggest fan for years. With a voice that would tempt a queen from her husband, he creates songs you can only call his. A great novelist, smoking guitarist, and fine man. It was a bucket-list wish to write with him.” - Waddie Mitchell

"He walks onstage and it is like pouring cream for a bunch of cats. The audience is slurping up everything he gives them and if they were any happier they’d be purring.” - Doris Daley
