Chris Bannister – Friday 11th August

The Music of John Denver
Chris is back at Lane for his fourth appearance. Such is his popularity that he all but sold out last year.
Singer/songwriter Chris began his recording career in 1992 with the critically acclaimed album ‘Only Human’ and achieved Record Of The Week on Radio 2 with his song ‘We Were Children’. He has released four albums of original songs and legendary DJ ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris referred to him as one of his favourite artists of the year.
In 2010 Chris began touring with his solo show ‘The Music of John Denver’ celebrating the life and work of the legendary singer/songwriter in his own unique way. He has recorded several radio specials for the BBC and toured extensively in the North of England for the last three years. Chris was honoured to be asked to perform in Aspen, Colorado in October 2012 for the annual celebrations of John Denver’s life and work.
He performed with Steve Weisberg, John Denver’s lead guitar player on all his platinum albums during the 70’s. Chris and Steve performed several concerts together, their final performance in Aspen being an unforgetable show at Windstar – Denver’s eco awareness centre in the heart of the rocky mountains. John Denver’s longtime friend Peter Plantec said after Chris and Steve’s concert at Aspen Community Church, ‘I wasn’t watching John tonight but all of the magic was there.’
Chris first brought his show to The Lane Theatre, Newquay last year and is very much looking forward to performing to a new audience..
