Our Activities Committee Chair Jo Schmitt continues to outdo herself in booking entertainment for our enjoyment at IWCA! This evening of music will include a John Denver Tribute concert! Following intermission, Tom Becker will play mixed dance music! What fun! Stay tuned for details. Until then, here's an introduction to Tom Becker!
Tom Becker is a former member of the Legendary Folk Group, The New Christy Minstrels, and has gone on to appear with Grammy Winners and Music Legends including Ray Charles, Jerry Lee Lewis, Willie Nelson, Gregg Allman and Jerry Jeff Walker.
And, it all began with a Sears Silvertone guitar ....and the music of John Denver.
In recent years, Tom began to feel that John Denver's music and message were more important than ever.
"In this time of environmental concerns, and Americans' efforts to simplify their lives, it seem that John Denver's music and message are even more relevant today, yet you rarely hear his music on the radio anymore."
So, he assembled a stellar band and created a concert that will inspire both long-time Denver fans, and those who may be less familiar with his music.
Timeless, universal themes of home, family, love and nature create the framework. Personal anecdotes and observations from his career in folk music create a warm, humorous and uplifting experience.

Cliff Erickson is considered one of the finest acoustic performers throughout the Midwest and southwestern Ontario. His musical instincts are clearly portrayed in his original work along with his amazing ability to capture the passion evoked by countless cover tunes. His soothing voice and his extraordinary talent on his signature 12-string acoustic guitar captivate his listeners as he takes them along on what has been best described as an “unparalleled musical excursion.” Cliff is an IW favorite. This concert will sell out so get your tickets early!
