Denver tribute artist Ted Vigil

Ted Vigil (shown) will be performing John Denver tunes from the 1970s on June 29 in Wellsboro.

Ted Vigil, singer-songwriter and John Denver tribute artist, will take the state at the Coolidge Theater, Deane Center, Saturday, June 29 at 7:30 p.m.

Vigil will perform songs Denver made famous in the 1970s.

The audience may be amazed by how much he looks and sounds like Denver.

The singer-songwriter died in 1997 at the age of 53 when his experimental aircraft crashed into the Pacific Ocean.

In Wellsboro, Vigil will perform Denver hits, such as “Rocky Mountain High,” “Thank God I’m A Country Boy” and “Sunshine on My Shoulders.” Vigil will also play one of the songs he has written.

Born in Seattle in 1964 and raised in the Olympia area of the State of Washington, Vigil began performing in 1974 at the age of 10. While in school, he developed his talents as a drummer and singer and played with concert, symphonic and jazz bands. When he was 17, Vigil was told he looked like Denver, which spurred him on to develop his tribute to Denver.

Today, Vigil tours his Denver tribute coast to coast in the United States and internationally as well.
