The Spirit of Johnny Cash

Why book The Spirit of Johnny Cash?

Tribute artist Harold Ford & The Cash Band with Laura Lucy as "Our June".
An exceptional performance, Harold's striking resemblance to Johnny Cash elevates him to a class of his own. Possessing a stage presence and charisma akin to Johnny Cash along with the deep Cash bass baritone voice and Cash looks, his performance is nothing short of eerie and ghostly.
The Cash Band, a team of highly trained professional musicians, recreate the authentic sound of The Tennessee Three and Johnny's later years, with a bit of The Highwaymen.
Laura Lucy embodies the spirit of June with her captivating presence and light hearted nature.
The endearing harmonies of Johnny and June are recreated and come alive.



Review by Claude G.

It was a pleasure working with Mr. Ford & his staff. Together we were able to coordinate the promotion & show. I must say that the Spirit of Johnny Cash show brought my club to its 200 capacity, with a very pleased crowd. I am so pleased, it would be a pleasure to work with Mr. Ford sometime in the future.

"The Spirit of Johnny Cash" is a concert dedicated to the extraordinary music of Johnny Cash.

Harold Ford, Laura Lucy & The Cash Band present Johnny Cash's music in an informal ensemble of songs, spanning his entire career, creating a concert similar to what Johnny Cash would have produced and performed.

True to Johnny's style of showcasing guest artists and sharing the stage, you will hear The Highwaymen and Carter family songs as well as Statler brother harmonies recreated.

The Cash Band is an extraordinarily talented team of four musicians (lead guitar, upright bass, drums, rhythm guitar) and vocalists who authentically recreate the sounds of Johnny Cash's rhythm section. From the distinct lead guitar of Luther Perkins (Sten Isachsen) to the upright slap bass of Marshall Grant (Mitch Throop) expect a brilliant sound.

Laura Lucy, as June Carter, embodies June's playful nature as she wraps the audience around her little finger. The endearing harmonies of Johnny and June come alive.

As every note unfolds, audiences sit mesmerized by the performance of Harold Ford and leave stunned. This is a remarkable and memorable show.

This concert is the closet you will ever get to Johnny Cash.

The Spirit of Johnny Cash

It is with great reverence for Johnny Cash, that I am inspired to continue his music and keep his torch burning.

The human struggles and challenges which Johnny Cash sang about are as prevalent today as they were throughout his career, which spanned over three generations of devoted listeners. He moved us all to look deep, with greater compassion and understanding at ourselves and others.

The members of The Cash Band and I strive to remain true to the humanity that was such an important part of Johnny’s music.

The mission of Harold Ford & The Cash Band is to carry on the spirit message and music of Johnny Cash.
