On Saturday, February 24th, at 7 pm, the Colony becomes a shrine to one of the great musical artists of the 20th century: Johnny Cash. “The Man in Black would’ve been 86 on February 26th,” says writer-musician and organizer Robert Burke Warren. “We’re covering the 50s Sun Records era to the Rick Rubin-produced American Recordings.” RBW, who also co-wrote the song “44 Stories” with Cash’s daughter, Rosanne, for her Grammy-nominated album Rules of Travel, leads a crack band of esteemed locals, including drummer Eric Parker (Joe Cocker, Orleans, Ian Hunter) bassist Chuck Cornelis (Chris Isaak, Sin City), and guitarist/vocalist Josh Roy Brown (The Trapps, Yarn).

Guest vocalists include local writer-musician and resident punk Peter Aaron, Americana trailblazer Steve Almaas (Beat Rodeo, Chris Whitley), Colony proprietor Neil Howard, and singer-songwriter Mark Sidgwick. To cover the seminal “Johnny & June” duets, RBW invited Woodstockers Doug Yoel and Carmen Senski of Sin City, recording artists Chris Maxwell and Ambrosia Parsley, Steve Koester (Two Dark Birds), singer-songwriter Sandy Bell, and visual artists/musicians Mark Lerner and Nancy Howell.

Says RBW: “Johnny Cash is that rare artist beloved by young and old, male and female, religious zealots and atheists, Conservatives and Liberals, queer and cis folk, punks and country fans, P.O.C. and otherwise, and all areas in-between. If ever there was a perfect time to celebrate such an artist, this is it.”
