  • Phillip Bauer and The Legend of Johnny Cash

    Friday, June 12, 2020 | 7:00 PM

    Phillip Bauer has toured the world for decades with his tribute performance, “The Legend of Johnny Cash”, faithfully recreating the music and presence of The Man in Black. The show spans the entire journey of Johnny Cash’s career, including hits, “Folsom Prison Blues”, “Get Rhythm”, “I Walk the Line”, “Ring of Fire” and many more. Johnny Cash’s longtime drummer W.S. Holland regards Bauer as, “the best tribute to John I have ever seen.”
