Since 2009, Award-Winning singer Daniel Thompson & Australian guitar master Stuie French have been wowing Australian audiences with their show, “Johnny Cash, The Concert… Celebrating 60 years of Cash”. They’ll be keeping the spirit of the Man in Black alive at Belmont 16s on Saturday September 12 when their show comes to town.
Having written over 800 songs and recorded 1500, Johnny Cash left behind an unparalleled body of work. It’s from this that Thompson and French have been able to draw from to paint a comprehensive retrospective that’s been getting rave reviews all around the country.
On September 1, 1954 an unknown young man walked into the recording studio in the Memphis Recording Service building at 706 Union Ave, Memphis, Tennessee and walked out having cut a record that would define its own genre of music. That single, Hey Porter, was released on the Sun Records label on June 21, 1955 and a legend was born.
Few artists can claim that they are an entire genre of music unto themselves but if you try and define this man’s body of work, you are left with one conclusion… It’s Johnny Cash.
Relive all the magic and mystic of The Man In Black with “Johnny Cash, The Concert… Celebrating 60 years of Cash” at Belmont 16’s on Saturday September 12. Tickets on sale now.
