JOHNNY CASH AT FOLSOM PRISON
An Evening of Film and Music Celebrating The Man in Black
Johnny Cash At Folsom Prison is a documentary which examines Cash's 1968 concert at Folsom State Prison in California and the ensuing album that became a symbol of the late 1960s and transformed his career. Drawing from rock photographer Jim Marshall's stark images of that day, rare archival footage, as well as exclusive interviews with participants and observers, the film traces Cash's rocky road that led to the concert and the torrent of stardom and political debate that came after it. This film exposes a lesser known "Man in Black," forever defined by darkness and light.
Following the film, there will be a special performance by "The Spirit of Johnny Cash" Live! Unplugged & personal, the evening includes a rare solo performance by Johnny Cash tribute artist Harold Ford performing songs featured in the film and other Cash hits.
Don't forget to wear black to honor Johnny!
