Spotlight on Johnny Cash at Rhumbelow Theatre in Durban North.

The timeless music of Johnny Cash can be enjoyed this weekend at the Rhumbelow in Durban North on Friday and Saturday evening, January 26 and 27, and Sunday afternoon January 28, in the company of the Black Lapels with special guests, in Walk the Line.

The Rhumbelow has been extraordinary in responding to the changing needs of the performing arts and entertainment landscape by offering regular quality movies; filmed live screenings of some of the world’s best ballet, theatre and opera productions, as well as regular live events, music and comedy. 

The music of Johnny Cash is a sun-soaked journey through country and rock, echoing the soul of Americana. His rugged voice and timeless tales ignite the summer air with raw emotion with his songs of sorrow, moral tribulation, and redemption. He was known for his deep, calm bass-baritone voice, as well as his all-black wardrobe and free prison concerts.

His signature songs include I Walk the Line, Folsom Prison Blues, Ring of Fire, Get Rhythm and Man in Black. He also recorded humorous numbers like One Piece at a Time and A Boy Named Sue.

The Black Lapels are brothers Rob Warren (singer, songwriter and guitarist) and Garth Warren bass and vocals) with Gareth Gale on drums, and special guests Tori du Plessis and Colin Peddie with great music and top-notch musicianship.

Shows take place at 19h30 on January 26 and 27 and at 14h00 on January 28.

In between the live shows, there is a great programme of Rhumbelow Film Club screenings, too.
