Woweeee this weather is crazy!! Typical British Summer!!
Any Johnny Cash Fans out there?! On the 18th September The No.1 Johnny Cash Tribute act will be in St Helens.
As is so often the case with unique artists, it takes another one to fully appreciate them. Having lived the life and music of Johnny Cash and other country heroes who came before and since, Ben Welburn, aka CASH, has effortlessly recreated the sound, vibe and appeal of the master himself.
Growing up on a farm in the heart of Yorkshire, music has always been central to Ben’s life. With a Grandfather who was a big band drummer, and a Father with a vast musical collection enthusiastically shared with whoever would listen, music was everywhere. However, it was the music of a certain JR Cash that managed that rare feat of stopping a young and energetic Ben in his tracks. Ben realised it wasn’t just Cash’s musicality that they had in common. The way Cash stood up prolifically for the working class, and wasn’t some clean cut musical ideal, only served to heighten Ben’s appreciation of the man. Aided by many late nights and a plentiful supply of hard liquor, Ben would often sing Johnny Cash songs to his mates, strumming along on acoustic guitar. Being a drummer first, it took a bit of coaxing from family and friends before Ben decided to take the Cash alter-ego seriously.
Ben AKA ‘Cash’ will be perfoming at The Citadel, Waterloo Street, St Helens, WA10 1PX And doors open at 7:30pm.
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday,
