JOHNNY Cash fans are in for a treat as Centrestage brings its tribute to the popular rockabilly, country, blues, folk and rock n roll icon in their show “Walk the Line” to Old Grey for one night only on Friday, December, 2.

Two sides of the enigmatic, rebellious legend are presented in the show by long-time Cash fans Hugo Kleinhans and Lionel Hunt.

Vocalist and keyboard player Megan Du Toit features as Cash’s second wife, long-time love interest and oft-times singing partner June Carter.

The double bass also features as Andrew Warneke gets to play the upright fretless instrument which was so central to the late nineteen fifties Tennessee Three rockabilly sound.

The lineup is completed by Devon Van Rooyen on drums.

The show takes in some 38 classic Cash songs, including hits played in his famous free prison concerts such as Walk the Line, Ring of Fire, Get Rhythm, Boy Named Sue, I Got Stripes, San Quentin and Folsom Prison Blues.

A fifties rockabilly salute depicting the popular sound of the time during Cash’s early tour days is also likely to prove extremely popular.

Lionel Hunt, well known nationally as a top-notch Elvis impersonator, comes in from his home in Port Alfred for the performance.

“Walk the Line” promises to both replicate and reinterpret the Johnny Cash songbook which is still particularly loved by audiences everywhere.

Tickets for the Old Grey performances, which start at 7:30pm, can be purchased through Computicket at R150 or R130 for 8 or more.
