The Spirit of Johnny Cash
Friday, March 8th, 8pm
31 Wakefield Street, Rochester
This is what country music is all about - the music of Johnny Cash.  Harold Ford is incredible as Johnny Cash.  He sings and looks exactly like the man in black - and it comes naturally.  Accompanied by the Red Hot Cash Band, an extraordinarily talented team of musicians, The Spirit of Johnny Cash recreates the music that made Johnny Cash country music's most iconic performer. The spirit of Johnny Cash emanates through tribute artist Harold Ford with his deep baritone and striking resemblance to the country music icon.  In this incredible recreation of Johnny Cash in Concert, you'll hear many of Cash's greatest hits, including Folsom Prison Blues, I Walk the Line, Ring of Fire, Jackson, and many more.  Audiences are mesmerized by the stage presence and charisma reminiscent of Johnny Cash performing at the Grand Ole Opry.

Tickets, which range from $22 to $27, are available now to the general public. The Opera House box office is open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10am to 5pm. Tickets can be purchased online, by phone, and in person at the box office, located in Rochester City Hall.
