Johnny Cash tribute in Parksville

The tribute performance will be at the Parkville Legion on June 19

David James and his band Big River are coming to the Parksville Legion for a Johnny Cash tribute show.

James will sing all of Cash’s well-known songs such as I Walk the Line, Solitary Man, Folsom Prison and Ring of Fire.

“It’s not only about the voice,” James said. “It’s about living and breathing the man — his posture, his mannerisms, his moves and his quirks. I want our audiences to go home feeling like they just observed the man himself.”

The show is Sunday, June 19 at the Parksville Legion (146 Hirst Ave.)

Tickets are $20 and are available at the door or in advance. The show starts at 7 p.m.

The show is open to all members and non-members.
