From “A Boy Named Sue” to “Ring of Fire,” four of Raleigh’s favorite musical sons pay tribute to the Man in Black with the Johnny Folsom Four. True to the Mr. Cash’s poetic spirit, the JF4 promises an honest and entertaining performance for fans of all ages. Lead singer David Burney brings a lilting southern baritone to Cash’s classic songs which hit the mark well enough that you may wonder on occasion if Johnny, himself, is in the building. David Gresham more than meets the challenge of filling in for Luther and Carl Perkins on those classic guitar licks. And Tom Mills (bass) and Randy Benefield (drums) provide the hallmark, train-like driving rhythm the whole world loves. And when the boys are living right, the remarkable Miss Eleanor Jones joins in on those classic Johnny and June duets; hotter than a pepper sprout! When it comes to honoring Johnny Cash, JF4 walks the line.
