You'll be singing the blues — that's the "Folsom Prison Blues" — come early next year thanks to a Johnny Cash tribute headed to the Fox Theater. Musician James Garner and his tribute will "walk the line" to downtown Bakersfield for a show Jan. 12.
Along with faithful recreations of Cash’s biggest hits, such as "Folsom Prison Blues," "I Walk the Line" and "Ring of Fire," Garner and his band incorporate historical accounts and personal anecdotes about the beloved singing storyteller in this not-to-be-missed musical event.
“Garner and the Cash Tribute Band give concertgoers their money’s worth," said Gene Beley, a former reporter for the Ventura Star Free Press, in a news release. "This act is seasoned enough to go anywhere and will not disappoint the people who wish to resurrect that classic Johnny Cash voice and rhythm.”
Doors open at 6:30 p.m., the show is at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 12 at the Fox, 2001 H St. Tickets, ranging from $20 to $40, are available now by calling 324-1369, visiting the Fox box office or online at ticketfly.com.
