Ron Matthews in Concert

Mountain Chalet Aspen 5th Floor, 333 E. Durant Ave., Aspen, CO 81611

From Ron Matthews: When: Thursday, Oct. 11, 2017 -- 7-9 pm Where: Mountain Chalet, 5th floor Who: Ron Matthews and YOU!

Barefoot on the front porch on a hot summer afternoon or standing in the spotlight on a cool October evening, playing the music of John Denver just never gets old -- and I'm pretty sure I'll never get tired of it! I hope you'll make plans now to join me in Aspen for a fun and relaxing concert sharing John Denver's music!

I'll be playing a 2 hour acoustic set sharing some of my -- and your -- favorite songs.

Fans and friends who have been to my shows know I like to put together setlists that are a bit unusual -- I like to perform songs that are seldom played or seldom heard in a live setting. This year's songs will include:

-- Wild Flowers in a Mason Jar -- Falling Leaves -- In My Heart -- Thirsty Boots -- Healing Time

I hope you'll set aside an extra $20 bill so you can attend my show! I'd love to help make your visit in Aspen a most pleasant and memorable experience, as we enjoy together some of the best acoustic music ever written -- the music of John Denver!

General admission $20 donation. No advance sales, please pay at the door (cash only, please!) THANK YOU so much!

Aspen Meadow Band in Concert: The Simple Truth

The Mountain Chalet, 333 E. Durant Ave., Aspen, CO 81611

Aspen Meadow Band would like to cordially invite you to an evening that celebrates the simple truths found within so many of John's songs.

Some of the truths John left us with are obvious and some very hidden. All of the truths he left us with are just as relevant today as they were on the day he penned them. This show will be one of our first unplugged shows, and our hope is that you will walk away with your spirit lifted and heart full to the brim. Please come ready to sing along!

*Open seating for this free event is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Aspen Meadow Band in Concert: Sunshine All The While

The Mountain Chalet, 333 E. Durant St., Aspen, CO 81611

Aspen Meadow Band would like to cordially invite you to an evening of music that celebrates the honesty and sincerity that John always walked in when sharing his music with the world.

This concert will take us through John's life using songs he wrote during the different periods in his life to express so deeply what he was feeling. While his life certainly took turns he was not planning for—his message always remained the same—and through that lens of truth we will see there was “sunshine all the while.”

*Open seating for this free event is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
