Fairfield: James Garner’s Tribute to Johnny Cash
February 24 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Come join us for a special birthday weekend celebration of Johnny Cash music! Johnny was born on February 26th, 1932, so we are starting the weekend celebration at the Downtown Theatre in Fairfield on Friday, February 24th at 8PM! For the past 14 years, Garner and his band have faithfully recreated Cash’s biggest hits with stunning accuracy in this not-to-be-missed musical event. From special concert airings on PBS stations to shows at Folsom and San Quentin Prisons, it’s easy to see why this is the premier tribute to the “Man in Black.”
The show is a fun, toe-tapping trip down memory lane honoring Johnny Cash’s life and music, and the boom-chicka-boom sound of his longtime backing band, the Tennessee Three. Enjoy the hits of the Man in Black all over again: “Folsom Prison Blues,” “Ring of Fire,” “I Walk the Line,” “A Boy Named Sue” and more! Garner and his band have performed more than 500 professional shows, including a special concert at Folsom State Prison in 2008 to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Cash’s infamous live album recorded behind prison walls.
