Renowned singer to perform at River Valley Fest


Acclaimed singer-songwriter, multi-platinum composer, and North County resident Jack Tempchin will be the featured musical entertainment at the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy’s (SDRVC) 7th Annual River Valley Fest, “Passion for the Park,” celebrating the Conservancy’s 30th Anniversary, on Sunday, Oct. 9, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Fairbanks Ranch Country Club. Tempchin will be performing his well-known hits as well as songs from his new album.

During his career spanning five decades, Tempchin has become best known for having written or co-written some of the most iconic songs of the past several decades.

Tempchin’s most popular songs include “Peaceful Easy Feeling” and “Already Gone” by the Eagles, “You Belong To The City” and “Smuggler’s Blues” by Glenn Frey, and “Slow Dancing (Swayin’ to The Music)” by classic rocker Johnny Rivers.

Among others, Tempchin has also had songs cut by Nashville legends George Jones, Emmylou Harris, Glen Campbell, Tanya Tucker and Trisha Yearwood.

The cost of the celebration is $125 per person which includes a cocktail reception, buffet dinner and a silent and live auction.

In addition to Tempchin, popular local musicians will perform. A beer and wine reception will be followed by a savory gourmet buffet created by the Country Club’s chef, and delightful desserts by Claire’s on Cedros. Attendees will enjoy bidding on live-auction items and taking chances on a variety of raffle items. For more information:
