A MUSICIAN who pays tribute to the late John Denver will “fill up your senses” at Bare Village Club on Friday, July 27.

Chris Bannister from Tarleton will perform the hits of the American country star including Annie’s Song and Leaving On A Jet Plane.

Chris, 47, has recently been asked to go to Denver’s native Colorado to sing at a celebration of the artist’s life and career.

“I was brought up on his music, my parents listened to him,” said Chris. “People said I sound like him so I thought I would give it a try.

“I was seen on YouTube and it was passed to a musician called Steve Weisberg who played on Annie’s Song and now he’s invited me to sing with him in Colorado.”

Tickets to see Chris at Bare Village Club on Bare Lane, Morecambe, cost £7 on the door. The show starts at 8pm.
