Big Canoe Mountain Twilight Concert Features Simon and Garfunkel Tribute

The overwhelming audience response to last year’s Mountain Twilight Concert starring the Jim Curry Band and their amazing rendition of John Denver’s music presented the POA Programs and Events Committee with a quandary. The hundreds of accolades declaring “That was the best concert we have ever had in Big Canoe” left us wondering how on earth we were going to duplicate that high standard for 2018. Great news—I believe we have done it! Let me introduce The Boxers.

The Boxers is a group from Florida also known as The Alter Eagles, and, they adopted the name The Boxers from a favorite S&G song. The composition of the band is a family affair. Todd and Greg Pitts are brothers and have been singing together for 40 plus years. Todd explains “ I deeply believe that we pay homage to our now deceased mother and her love of harmony in the artists we have chosen to tribute.”

Memories of the music of Simon and Garfunkel are synonymous with angelic voices, incredible harmonies, and beloved songs–Mrs. Robinson, The Sound of Silence, Bridge Over Troubled Waters, Scarborough Fair, Feelin’Groovy, and of course, the Boxer–that have remained popular for decades. In addition to Simon and Garfunkel, the group’s other shows celebrate Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, James Taylor and The Eagles.

The Mountain Twilight concert will be the final outdoor picnic/concert for the summer, and it is sponsored by the Big Canoe POA, Smoke Signals, and Fran Farias of State Farm Insurance. It is given free each year as a special musical gift to the Big Canoe Community.
