Fans of the Man in Black can enjoy a theatrical show described by Johnny Cash’s granddaughter as “authentic to the point where it felt it wasn’t a tribute”.
The Johnny Cash Roadshow will roll into Forum Theatre in Malvern on 25thJanuary fronted by talented singer/songwriter Clive John who has also enjoyed solo success in the country music chart.
Fans will experience all the Cash classics such as Walk the Line, Folsom Prison Blues and Thing Called Love as well as enjoy the tale of two enigmatic talents, JR Cash and his sweetheart June Carter.
Fifteen years since the Man in Black sadly passed away, The Johnny Cash Roadshow is more than just a tribute act, it is the biggest and best celebration of Cash’s formidable legacy.
A pitch perfect rendition of all the greatest hits, The Johnny Cash Roadshow has received acclaim wherever it has toured – not least from Johnny Cash’s own granddaughter Caitlin Crowell.
Caitlin arrived unannounced at a gig in Altrincham and met Clive backstage.
She described the show as: “authentic to the point where it felt it wasn’t a tribute” and felt that Clive had captured her grandfather just as he was.
The cast, featuring Clive John as Cash, Emily Heighway as June Carter, Nick Davis on guitars, bassist Martin Bentley and drummer Graham Cutill. covers five decades of Cash’s life and the musical life of Johnny and June complemented by big screen images and a compelling narrative.
Authenticity is added to the production thanks to two original Johnny Cash harmonicas gifted to Clive by a friend of Johnny Cash after a gig and an exact replica of Johnny’s Gibson J-200 guitar.
