Ireland’s longest running Johnny Cash tribute band, Strictly Cash, make a much-anticipated return to Spike Island for two special performances to be held at the former island prison on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th June. The band will recreate the infamous Folsom Prison concert performed by The Man in Black himself over 50 years ago.
Johnny Cash’s prison performances became legendary in musical circles as he played to some of America’s most hardened criminals at San Quentin and Folsom Prison. The Man in Black became forever linked to his infamous prison gigs, and this special Spike Island performance will recreate his prison escapades. His Folsom Prison performance resulted in a live album which became one of the defining moments in his career.
Tribute act Strictly Cash have been performing the country singer’s hits for many years and previously played at Dublin’s Mountjoy Prison back in 2008 for the 40th anniversary of Cash’s Folsom Prison concert.
Expect a fitting tribute to the Man in Black at Ireland’s most famous prison island featuring his iconic hits such as I Walk the Line, Jackson, Ring of Fire, Get Rhythm, Folsom Prison Blues and more.
