Pickie Funpark's #MusicOnTheMarina proudly presents 'Get Rhythm: A Tribute to Johnny Cash'!
This Johnny Cash experience is made up of a group of seven musicians from County Cavan in Ireland who spent 4 months in 2013 touring the prisons of Ireland, recreating the prison concerts undertaken by Johnny Cash and his band in the 1960s.
Following the prison tour, this 7 piece band (replicating the classic Cash, Tennessee Three, Carter Family and Carl Perkins line-up) have been taking their performance to venues playing songs from throughout Cash's career. Paul McCann recreates the role of Johnny Cash and June Carters vocal duties are performed by Louise O'Reilly.
The show has certainly been well received. As well as a headline slot at Electric Picnic and sold out shows nationwide, the band performed in front of a sold out audience at the Slieve Russell Hotel, on the same stage where Johnny Cash himself performed 23 years earlier. Following appearances on national TV/ radio (Ireland AM and RTE Radio), and accolades of support from John Carter Cash and WS Holland (Johnny Cash’s drummer), there appears to be no stopping Get Rhythm.
"almost worth doing time for" (Independent.ie) "the world’s best Johnny Cash tribute band" (Joe Finnegan - Northern Sound)
