Annual “Environmental Awareness Concert” Features John Denver Tribute
Fish Creek, Wis. (June 23, 2021) — The 2021 Fishstock Concert Series will open with singer/songwriter Will Kruger’s tribute to John Denver on Sunday, July 4. Kruger’s musical roots go back to the folk era ,where influence from the likes of Peter, Paul and Mary, Simon & Garfunkel, John Denver, Gordon Lightfoot and James Taylor shaped his musical style. As a songwriter, Will has had four of his songs featured in the Lazarus Film Works production of “God Where are You.”
The 10-concert Fishstock Series includes a wide range of well-known musicians in the genres of folk, Americans, and alternative music, said concert promoter Steve Ellmann. “This is the same group of musicians we had planned to showcase in 2020, so we’re ecstatic that they were available for our 2021 shows,” said Ellmann. “These are musicians who represent some of the best of what’s happening on the current music scene.”
To attend a Fishstock concert, drive down County Hwy F east of Fish Creek and close to the intersection with Maple Grove Rd. you’ll notice a big white barn on the south side of the highway covered with colorful letters dubbing it “Fishstock.”
