James Garner's Tribute to Johnny Cash

September 24, 2020 • 7:30 p.m.
Kelly Walsh High School Auditorium

James Garner's Tribute to Johnny Cash celebrates the life and music of the legendary "Man in Black" with strong conviction and stunning accuracy. Garner and his band faithfully recreate Cash's biggest hits and present historical accounts and personal anecdotes about America's most beloved singing storyteller in this not-to-be-missed musical event.

Since 2008, Garner and his band have toured across the country, honoring Johnny Cash and his musical legacy. A special show at Folsom State Prison in 2008 commemorated the 40th anniversary of Cash's infamous live album recorded behind prison walls. The band returned to Folsom, California in January 2018 on the 50th anniversary of the prison concert, performing two sold-out shows at the Harris Center for the Arts, with guest artist Tara Cash, along with reporter Gene Beley and photographer Dan Poush, who had been at the prison to cover the original concert. For a commemoration of a different nature, Garner and the band performed at the U.S. Post Office in Claremont, California at the official unveiling of the Johnny Cash stamp in June, 2013.

Enjoy this fun, toe-tapping trip down memory lane and the boom-chicka-boom sound of James' longtime backing band, the Tennessee Three. Learn more at cashtribute.net or on Facebook @JohnnyCashTributeShow.
