Presented by the Araluen Arts Centre

Presented by Chris Keeble, Fish out a Water Productions – The Rockumentary Series
Country music superstar Johnny Cash was a music industry legend for over half a century, with an instantly recognisable rich, deep voice and a barebones musical style.

Dr Baz Ferrier is Johnny Cash, looking back on his rise from humble beginnings on a poor cotton farm – soaking up gospel and country music, the floods, hard work and a harsh, unloving father – to tough times on the Pontiac production line in Detroit and his enlistment during the Korean war as a US airman. See his rise to become a musical sensation from his start in the honky-tonk bars of Germany – where he began to hone his characteristic style and write his unique songs – through to his first marriage and his time as a recording artist for the legendary Sun Records, alongside Elvis and Jerry Lee Lewis.282880

Filled with Cash’s greatest hits and signature tunes, his fascinating, larger-than-life story unfolds, providing a fascinating glimpse into his life – his drug addiction, the Prison Concerts, and his epic, redeeming love story with lifetime soul mate June Carter.
