There is no more iconic figure in the American landscape than Johnny Cash. His presence, voice, and unique perspective still echo throughout the very fabric of our time.
The complexities of his own personal character that played out over his lifetime, often reflect the struggles of people from all walks of life. From starting out picking cotton in the badlands of Arkansas, to becoming "The Man in Black", Johnny Cash is truly an American original.
Tennessee's own Johnny Kinnaird is a multi-talented actor/musician who grew up on the words of Johnny Cash. After a three year stint in Broadway's "Million Dollar Quartet", Johnny brings the fire and passion that made Cash a legend.
Joining Johnny for this homage to Mr. Cash on lead guitar is New York guitar legend Simon Chardiet (Simon and the Bar Sinisters, Joey Miserable and the Worms). On skins JJ Murphy (The Lower Broads, Tether's End, Thee Shambles) and holding down the bottom on doghouse bass is Guy Kurshenoff (Sonny Kenn, the SaddleTones, the Buzzards, and Eddie Clendening).
Starting with the songs from his humble beginnings at legendary Sun Records and travelling throughout his amazing musical career this combo is sure to capture the passion, danger, and sound that made the man.
