About

After the success of our homages to Nina Simone, John Lee Hooker, Robert Johnson and Howlin' Wolf, we celebrate the story of Johnny Cash, one of the best selling artists of all time. When Johnny Cash died in 2003, the world mourned the loss of a genius. His music remains vivid in the imaginations of fans the world over. He holds the rare honour of inductions to the Country, Rock'n'Roll and Gospel Halls of Fame. You only have to think of the string of incredible releases he put out over the course of his career to understand the contribution that Cash has made to music history. His often turbulent life and career, punctuated with drug addiction, tragedy and heartbreak, was documented in the 2005 film Walk The Line. The film was nominated for five oscars, which is testament to Cash's enduring cultural significance. We're bringing some of London's best musicians to play out all of Cash's greatest hits, both as a solo artist and the numerous duets he recorded with his wife June Carter. Expect to hear "Folsom Prison Blues", "I Walk the Line", "Ring of Fire", "Get Rhythm", while also incorporating some of the slower tunes he put out later on his career, amongst them "Hurt" and "I Hung My Head".
