To celebrate both the Man in Black and the publication of his new book, Cash on Cash: Interviews and Encounters with Johnny Cash, local musician and writer Robert Burke Warren will bring his beloved Johnny Cash Bash musical tribute revue back to Colony on October 1.

Touting “a heaping helping of Cash classics, from ‘I Walk the Line’ to ‘A Boy Named Sue’ to ‘Hurt,’ and more,” the show will have the genial Warren leading a crack band of area players and joined by special guest vocalists.

Described as “a comprehensive collection of Johnny Cash interviews and stories, some never previously transcribed, culled from the 1950s through the early days of the new millennium, Cash on Cash charts a singular evolution. From hardscrabble Arkansas poor boy to rockabilly roustabout; international fame to drug addiction and disgrace; born again Christian to gimlet-eyed chronicler of spiritual darkness; TV and movie star to Nashville reject; redemption to loss and back again, several times.” Woodstock’s Golden Notebook bookstore will offer copies of the book for sale, which Warren will sign for purchasers. “Come help us turn Colony into a cross between a roadhouse and a bookstore,” says the author.

Robert Burke Warren’s Johnny Cash Bash will take place at Colony in Woodstock on October 1 at 8pm. Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 day of show.
