Rick as Denver: priceless

Singer-songwriter Rick Price presented a faultless performance on the opening night of the John Denver Story at the AthanaeumTheatre.

Rick, along with the Colorado Quartet, interpreted Denver’s timeless classics in a way that only a seasoned performer of his calibre could.

With an informative and engaging narration by Rick throughout the show about Denver and himself, the John Denver Story certainly gets the thumbs up.
