We are excited to announce the amazing Cash Returns Show which is selling out all around the country on the 60th anniversary of the great man’s original tour of Ireland is coming to Clogheen on Friday 26th May to open this year’s festival. As many probably know Johnny Cash himself came to holiday in Ireland in 1959 taking in a visit to the Vee, instantly falling in love with the place and which inspired his hit 40 Shades of Green while looking out over the Galty Vee Valley!!
CASH RETURNS’ – has been hailed hands down the greatest and most exciting Johnny Cash & June Carter Tribute in the UK, Ireland and beyond by Man In Black fans everywhere.
It is regarded as one of the best touring live music shows in the country with a fan base that grows daily with them having recently picked up ‘Best Tribute Band’ at the ‘HOT COUNTRY TV AWARDS’ and Best Tribute Show at the 2022 ‘Northern Ireland Country Music Awards’, for the second year running.
The show is fronted by the award winning JP Mac as Johnny Cash, whose baritone voice and tone is scarily uncanny to the Man in Black’s himself with even an official accolade of support coming from Johnny Cash’s very own Drummer of near 40 years W.S (Fluke) Holland, who was completely blown away and regarded their tracks as ‘quite amazing’ on his radio show in Tennessee.
JP is then joined on stage by Karen Martin as June Carter who brings all the vibrancy and onstage sassiness of June Carter complete with fantastic vocals.
Combined, JP and Karen along with their fantastic live band truly bring their audiences with them to a place and time when the iconic Cash & Carter reigned supreme and will in no doubt leave you singing and dancing along with them in the aisles and on the dance floors.
CASH RETURNS have been playing in festivals, hotels and theatres throughout all of Ireland, UK and Europe for the past 9 years, while also having appeared on various radio slots BBC, RTE 1 and national TV appearances, RTE, TG4 & NVTV.
The show is currently playing to sell out audiences all over the UK, Ireland and Europe. If you go along to one of their shows you will hear all the show stopping classics such as, ‘Folsom Prison Blues’, ‘Get Rhythm’, ‘ Walk the Line’, ‘Hurt’ and of course the duo hit ‘Jackson’.
While Cash Returns brings the classic sound of the Man In Black to todays audiences they have also had fantastic recent success by both creating new songs and covering other existing songs in the same iconic sound with their hit singles ‘Hotel Yorba’ , and ‘The Highway Man Blues’, that both made the Top Ten in the Irish Country Charts.
So if you’re a real Johnny Cash and June Carter fan, you simply cannot afford to miss this spectacular show when it rolls into town.
