Ted Vigil Returns with John Denver Tribute
When Ted Vigil was a teenager, friends told him how much he looked like John Denver. At age 22, when he met his future wife’s mother, the first thing she remarked to him was how much he resembled the musician and political activist.
A talented singer and musician in his own right, Vigil developed a Denver tribute act, with which he won a national talent show in Nevada in 2006. With that victory as additional inspiration, Vigil began touring in 2007. In 2012, he received the Rising Legend Award by the National Traditional Country Music Association.
Vigil is returning to Port Charlotte for a one-night-only show on Feb. 6 at the William H. Wakeman III Cultural Center Theater. He will performing all the hits from Denver’s expansive songbook, including “Annie’s Song,” “Rocky Mountain High,” “Thank God I’m A Country Boy,” “Sunshine On My Shoulders,” “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” “Back Home Again,” and many more.
Vigil played twice for John Denver’s own Windstar Foundation in Aspen, Colo., and also performed with the late Steve Wiesberg, John Denver’s lead guitar player from 2010 to 2014. Weisberg described Vigil’s transformation as “uncanny.” When you see him on stage, you’ll become a believer as well.
The show starts at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, February 6th at the Cultural Center, 2280 Aaron Street, Port Charlotte. Tickets are $22 and may be ordered at the Charlotte Players website, www.charlotteplayers.org, or by calling the box office at 941-625-4175, ext. 220.
