legend that is Johnny Cash.
Far From Folsom is a fresh incarnation of Johnny’s famous performances
recorded live at Folsom and San Quentin prisons in the late 1960’s.
Tex’s affinity with the original rock ‘n roll outlaw goes back to his teens, and
his earliest band, when he first started channelling Johnny’s songs.
Many years, many records and many awards later, the man best-known for
fronting The Cruel Sea, Beasts of Bourbon, Tex, Don & Charlie and The
Dark Horses is back at the wheel of a meaner, leaner, turbo-charged take on
Johnny Cash’s time behind bars.
First presented early in 2015 at The Old Parramatta Gaol, organisers
scrambled to expand the roster to two, then three sold-out shows, as over
7000 tickets were snapped up in hours.
