Recreating the sounds of Johnny Cash

Posted onPosted on 4th Oct

The sounds of country music legend Johnny Cash are to be brought to the Palace Theatre, Mansfield.

The Johnny Cash Roadshow is fronted by singer/songwriter Clive John, who has also enjoyed solo success in the country music charts.

As well as featuring the music of the Man In Black, the show is also the story of his songbird sweetheart, June Carter.

It has all the finest ingredients of any great musical stage tribute – a foot-tapping, lovingly-arranged set of Cash classics like Walk The Line, Folsom Prison Blues and Thing Called Love.

The cast plays out five decades of Cash music and the musical life of the Carter Cash union in full costume.

An evocative backdrop of big screen images is complemented by a compelling narrative, giving audiences a glimpse into the couple’s life both on and off the road.

Clive plays two original Johnny Cash harmonicas given to him by super-fan Keith Hunt at a gig in Kent, and an exact replica of Johnny’s beloved Gibson J-200 guitar that rests in the Johnny Cash Museum in Nashville.

The Johnny Cash Roadshow boasts a core cast of five – Clive John, Emily Heighway (June Carter), Martin Bentley (bass), Nick Davis (guitars) and Darren Bazzoni (drums).

It is at Mansfield Palace Theatre on Friday, 19th October, at 7.30pm. Call the Box Office on 01623 633133 or book online at mansfieldpalace.co.uk
