20th Anniversary Tribute to John Denver
Go to this facebook page:
I am EXCITED!!!!!!! :)
It took a little longer due to the relaunch of the website, but -- here is an up to date list of events in Aspen this October!
20 years ago today, we planted the trees in our orchard in celebration of 15 years "music and communication".
Here is – sort of a report from the beginnings… J
Wellllll – the new version of the website has been released into this world…. J
Even if this is still a work in progress and many links within the articles are still ending up in nowhere land or at unexpected places … we ARE back indeed!!!
Here is the address – http://johndenver.de ---- but old bookmarks shall also work again. You are welcome to browse, please let me know mistakes by answering to this mail…. I will also keep on searching, of course…. :D
here's a sneak peek into our new Website… :)
Still needs a little time...
Okay, the time has come – I am working on the relaunch of our website J
At the moment, you will only see a construction page when you try to reach it.
I will drop you a line as soon as we are online again – the address will not change, it will only look all different in the end….
It may take a while until I am finished – after all, the site has about 100 pages in each German and English, and since the new Joomla version is not compatible to the old one, I have to do this all by hand, one by one.
Please stay with us… :)
this was written during the Vietnam War -- and is still as poignant and up to date as it was then...
Erin Huttlinger sent us some news - in case you are interested in, for example, a guitar camp, please follow this link:
I have been asked several times about the special "Let This Be A Voice" – well, the whole thing has been uploaded to YouTube in 6 parts – this link goes to part 1, the other parts can be clicked in a list which shows up on the right of the video (at least on my computer…)
Not much news these days, so here's a photo to keep in touch… :)
I have been made aware of the fact that one of John’s guitars has been put up for sale – check it out here:
Yes, it is quite pricy, but hey, it is a SPECIAL instrument, and we thought maybe there is somebody who may be interested.
Shipping outside of the USA or pickup can be arranged, as I was assured by the sellers.
I just received this note from Chris Nole – thought you may be interested, too, so I am forwarding it to you! :)
I hope your summer is going great so far.
I wanna give you a heads up on my upcoming August 2nd release.
I've been working on this project now for quite a long time and it's finally about to come out!
IT BE WHAT IT BE is a rousing celebration of vintage blues, rock & roll, and New Orleans-style piano and song. These tracks were inspired by such keyboard greats as Professor Longhair, Randy Newman, Ray Charles, Dr. John, Pinetop Perkins, Johnnie Johnson, and others.
Here is a little advance preview video I put together: Video
And here's a page where you can hear some of the tracks and order the CD in advance
(free shipping within USA for advance orders until AUG 2): Orders
Thanks so much - please shoot me a note when you get a chance and let me know
what you think about the new music.
All the best,

|Erin Huttlinger sent out this newsletter today - so in case you are heading to Nashville, please note this info
|I am sure many of us here knew and loved Pete and would like to know about the event Erin Morris Huttlinger is setting up for him... So, here is her announcement on facebook:
"I would like to announce that the Pete Huttlinger Celebration of Life will take place in Nashville on February 26 at the City Winery. It will be an evening event, but times will be announced here next week. Thank you all for your patience. It has taken a bit of time for me to wrap my head around this. I'd like it to be perfect and special.
|Today I am passing on a message John St. Augustine posted on our facebook group -
"The human voice is the organ of the soul..." Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. That's how Chapter 1 "Your Voice Matters" begins in my book "Living An Uncommon Life" and its about my friend John Denver, who's voice for millions was exactly what Longfellow was talking about. Honored to release "John Denver The Man & His Music" the original broadcast I hosted in 2007 on the 10th anniversary of John's passing. Stories from Annie Denver, , Ronald L. Deutschendorf, John Berry, Michael Martin Murphey, "The Immortal" Roger Nichols & Conrad Reeder along with names like Milt Okun, Tom Crum and Terry Lipman among others. I am only taking orders at this point until January 30th."
It is with a very heavy heart that I have to announce to you that John's guitar player Pete Huttlinger passed away on Friday. He was 54 years old. I know many of you knew and loved him as well.
Our thoughts are with his wonderful wife Erin and his family.
Here Erin's facebook message:
I am heartbroken. Today my beautiful husband, Pete Huttlinger passed away. I am paralyzed. On Monday Pete had a brain bleed and was admitted to Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Over the course of less than 24 hours he went from talking and laughing to unresponsive. He never regained consciousness and today at 12:30pm he died. He was not only surrounded by some of his family and friends, but by so many of his doctors and nurses who have helped keep him alive over the last few years. I was so touched by the humanness and sincere pain shown by these physicians. Over the many years of Pete’s ongoing health challenges, these medical caregivers have invested so much of their brilliance and humanity into keeping Pete alive. I appreciate it more than I’ll ever be able to express to them.
I loved this man with such depth. My entire essence and energy were devoted to loving him and letting him know how much I loved him. And he made it clear every single day of our marriage that he felt the same way. I am at a deep loss as half of me has now disappeared.
My family and I were given a wonderful gift throughout this tragedy in that Pete stayed with us for nearly four days giving us time to accept what he already knew.
I know that many of you reading this loved him as well. Again, the feeling is reciprocated from both Pete and myself. I have so many more thoughts and emotions I would like to share, but I am in such a fog of emptiness that this is all I can muster.
I also know that messages have been coming in all day. I promise I will read them all. I appreciate them so.
Thank you for loving him too.Erin Huttlinger
