Johnny Cash, Luther Perkins, and Marshall Grant would forever be known as Johnny Cash & The Tennessee Two after recording at Sun Studio in Memphis Tennessee with producer Sam Phillips in 1954. This same band would still be together by the time of Cash’s famous live concert recorded at Folsom State Prison in 1968. However, by this time, the Johnny Cash show included future wife June Carter on lead vocals, Carl Perkins on guitar and vocals, Tennessee Three member W.S. Holland on drums, and the Statler Brothers on backing vocals.
“The Old Perfesser” introduced himself to Alex Battles at the CasHank Hootenanny Jamboree with “I know all that Luther Perkins stuff.” Together they have collaborated on The Johnny Cash Birthday Bash for over a decade. This year’s show will focus on the music of Cash’s childhood, Sun Records singles, and prison performances. Special guest Linda Hill will join The Whisky Rebellion to electrify the crowd with the iconic June Carter duets. The Whisky Rebellion also features Sammo on guitar and vocals, Tina Lama on bass, and Smilin’ Charlie Shaw on drums. DJ General Buell spins classic tunes before and after the show. The music of the Man in Black will ring out all night long.Read More »
