3. A Tribute to Johnny Cash – this Saturday at the Mae Wilson

The Moose Jaw Cultural Centre is pleased to present David James and Big River in a Tribute to Johnny Cash, Saturday, May 29th at 7:30 PM at the Mae Wilson Theatre.

Appearing before sold out crowds, this group is North America's favourite Johnny Cash tribute act, performing the hits spanning five decades of Johnny's career. The show includes all of the great Cash songs including, I Walk The Line, Solitary Man, Get Rhythm, Folsom Prison, Ring of Fire and newer songs like Hurt and Rusty Cage.

David James and Big River are doggedly dedicated to replicating the most authentic Johnny Cash tribute the world has ever seen, in the style and with the sound of Johnny Cash himself. Most tribute bands consciously try to look, act and sound like their idols. David James doesn't even have to try, he just nails it. In fact, David was honoured to provide Cash's voice in the new documentary movie "My Father and the Man in Black", proving that he is the most authentic Johnny Cash Tribute artist in the business.

Tickets are $30 plus charges, available at the Cultural Centre Box Office or online at www.moosejawculture.com
