An Evening with Roger McGuinn 
Saturday, September 30, 2017, at 8:00 p.m.

As founder of the Byrds, Roger McGuinn is firmly established as an indisputable industry icon. From his signature 12-string Rickenbacker sound, to his instantly recognizable vocals on hits like “Mr. Tambourine Man,” McGuinn didn’t just make music, he made history. Take the journey of story and song through old and new territory as McGuinn revisits the past and newly embraces folk music influences.

An Afternoon with Peter Yarrow (of Peter, Paul & Mary)
Sunday, February 11, 2018, at 3:00 p.m.

Folk musician Peter Yarrow’s talents as a creative artist are frequently engaged in using music to convey a message of humanity and caring. His gift for songwriting has produced some of the most moving songs from Peter, Paul & Mary, including “Puff, the Magic Dragon,” “Day is Done,” and “Light One Candle.” The renowned trio earned multiple gold and platinum albums, as well as numerous Grammys. 

Jim Curry Presents the Music of John Denver
Sunday, April 8, 2018, at 3:00 p.m.

The music of the late, beloved singer-songwriter John Denver is like an old friend, outlasting trends and standing the test of time, teaching us to care for the earth and care for each other. Acclaimed performer Jim Curry’s uncanny ability to mirror Denver’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.
