Keith Furry is well aware of the complexities surrounding Johnny Cash, in fact, he embraces them. “One of my favorite lines to describe Johnny Cash is from the book ‘Cash’ by Rolling Stone magazine: ‘Sinner, Saint, Rebel, Voice of Protest, Man of Faith’, says Furry, leader of the tribute band Walkin’ With Cash.
Hailed as one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century, Cash had that rarest of crossover appeals, having earned induction into the Rock n Roll, Country and Gospel Halls of Fame. Furry captures those intricacies with a fan’s eagerness and a musician’s skill. From his note perfect trembling baritone voice to his all black outfits, every detail rings true during a Walkin’ With Cash show.
Of course, much of Cash’s music, particularly toward the end of his stellar career, focused on moral questions and the search for redemption but Furry’s rendition of this often dark and mysterious superstar never translates into a dour, over-serious experience on stage. Instead, Furry delves deep into the Cash catalog shining a spotlight on every corner of this legend-from his rockabilly beginnings to his flirty duets with wife June Carter Cash, expertly recreated in the Walkin’ With Cash performances by Jan Daily.
