"When Layne Yost hits the stage performing John Denver, expect a delighted crowd.
This, our second year, was no exception. Folks raved about it as they left the theater and went so far as to email us a bit of their joy at seeing Yost's tribute to Denver."

"It's a win-win for everyone!"

"A mighty thanks to Layne Yost, Jon Shimoda, and Carol McDowall for the Tribute to John Denver concerts on Sat Feb 25th at the Winona Arts Center! Such accomplished musicians as well as fine storytelling by Layne, bringing all the descriptive little known elements of John Denver's life, lyrics and music together. An intimate stage presence and a wonderful connection with the audience.
We hope to have them return to Winona."                                             Mary Coughlan,

​​​The music of John Denver is timeless and well known. Layne Yost's "Tribute to the Music of John Denver" is a faithful tribute that pays homage to the music and the man. Yost, McDowall, and Shimoda capture the simple soul of Denver's music through guitar, fiddle, and upright bass arrangements. Woven within the music are stories that give insight into Denver's life and legacy.  A wonderful show that will take you back and remind you of simple things that remain true. 



"The Edgar Fine Arts Association received nothing but praises for bringing Layne Yost's 'Tribute to the Music of John Denver' to our community. It was a great show that we will have to bring back… a very talented performance."
