DARKE COUNTY – DCCA Coffee House Series to open with John Lennon Tribute.

Darke County Center for the Arts’ 2023-2024 Coffee House Series of concerts presented in accessibly cozy settings opens at Montage Cafe on Thursday, Oct. 12 with “In the Spirit of Lennon,” a tribute to the beloved Beatle by singer/songwriter and Beatle fan Drew Harrison.

“This show provides insight into the life and career of one of the most popular artists of all time, John Lennon,” explained DCCA Artistic Director David Warner. “Drew Harrison is a very talented musician with a great voice, and his loving tribute will thrill Beatle fans while entertaining those who simply enjoy good music.”

“In the Spirit of Lennon” is an emotionally charged retrospective of the life and career of one of the former Beatle as told through stories and songs. Drew Harrison, a genuine troubadour, was naturally drawn to music from an early age, as his heroes growing up were Stevie Wonder, Elton John, and John Lennon.

Currently residing in California, Harrison has toured across the U.S. for nearly two decades, and has opened for elite artists such as Richard Thompson, Lyle Lovett, and Steve Miller; he also performs with Beatles tribute group The Sun Kings.
