A Tribute to Johnny Cash September 23

A Thursday, September 23 "Rockin' Main Street" special music event is expected to draw hundreds of evening visitors to downtown Lake Wales.

A tribute performance is a ticketed event and features the music of Johnny Cash, starting at at 7:00 pm in the Marketplace. "Forever Johnny Cash" presents the unique sound and rebel attitude of Cash "as if it were live and for the first time" in the early 1960s, according to promotional materials.

Guests are invited to experience this great singer-songwriter recreated on stage in the musical tribute. Performer Rick Mallory is a tribute artist as well as an accomplished musician and singer-songwriter. Having a strong resemblance to the younger Cash, his portrayal is both energetic and authentic. Mallory performs favorite hits including "I Walk The Line", "Ring of Fire" and "Folsom Prison Blues."

Guests are reminded to bring a portable chair as no seating is provided.

Tickets are $25 at the gate.

Advance tickets are $19 and are available here.

The event is presented by Lake Wales Main Street & Lake Wales Arts Council, and underwritten in part by SouthState Bank.
