For one weekend only — David Burney, lead singer of the Johnny Cash tribute band, Johnny Folsom 4, will bring his one-man show “Hello, I’m Johnny Cash” to The ArtsCenter of Carrboro.
The show will be performed from Jan. 24 to 26. On Friday and Saturday, the show will begin at 8 p.m. and on Sunday the show will be at 3 p.m.
Burney has been performing in Johnny Folsom 4 for 11 years. While his musical style mirrors that of Cash, his physical appearance also closely resembles that of the late country music star. The inspiration for his one-man show is to replicate Cash’s famous Live at Folsom Prison performance from 1968.
Johnny Folsom 4 recreated that show in Saxapahaw, North Carolina in the style of a theatrical production, imitating the live album down to each lyric and sound.
"It sold out great,” Burney said. “The audience played the role of the inmates so they were really loud and everybody had a great time. It was packed. And when I saw that, I felt like there was for sure a place for the solo show.”
