Cash Unchained: Ultimate Johnny Cash Tribute
Friday, June 1 at 7:30 pm
In the John E. Hillert Auditorium
Sponsored by the Covington Hot-Springs Rotary Club
Tickets: Main Orchestra: $25; Rear Orchestra/Front Balcony: $20; Rear Balcony $15; Box Seats: $35

We're kicking-off Alleghany Highlands Heritage Day and Railway Festival weekend with a tribute to "The Man-in-Black'.

Have you ever imagined experiencing ALL of Johnny’s iconic songs in concert just the way you remembered them? From the early days with Sam Philips at Sun Records to the later years with Rick Rubin and American Recordings, Cash Unchained delivers a complete catalog of breathtaking music from one of the greatest country artists of all time. Experience it LIVE for one night only!

Johnny Cash may not have been the greatest singer or musical technician, but his sound was unforgettable. Steady like a train, sharp like a razor, with the perfect blend of country, rock 'n' roll, and folk music, Cash paved the way for artists of all genres for years to come. Without Johnny Cash, we wouldn't have some of the music we've all enjoyed over the past 6 decades. Performed by some of the finest musicians in the state of Virginia, James Tamelcoff captures Cash's trademark baritone voice, while his band delivers the infectious, driving rhythm of the Tennessee Three.

The group has sold-out theatres across the southeast, including the legendary House of Blues. They will entertain you with Cash’s greatest hits including “Folsom Prison Blues”, “Ring of Fire”, “Walk the Line”, and many more. You will also hear songs from the end of Cash’s career including his final hit “Hurt” written by Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails).

The EXPERIENCE gave us such a high energy show last summer that we begged to have them back! Get ready, here they come!!

The Honky Tonk Experience brings country classics to life while at the same time performing songs of current artists whose music is true to what country music used to be and still should be. From Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings to Dwight Yoakam and Dale Watson. From Merle Haggard, Alan Jackson and Buck Owens to BR5-49 and The Derailers. A Honky Tonk Experience show brings young and old together on the dance floor. The “Experience” is a true “hard-core” country music band!!!!
The “Experience” is comprised of four of Richmond, Virginia’s most respected musicians. Each member has forged their own reputation by playing in a variety of other bands over the past 30 years. Brad Spivey provides the classic country lead vocals. Mike Lucas is well known for his distinctive Tele picking. Mark Watts has spent 20+ years drumming up and down the East Coast. Clark Ball, bassist, provides the solid foundation for the band to build their sound upon. In 2016 Stephen McCarthy, from The Long Ryders and The Jayhawks, has become an unofficial fifth member. He will be filling out the Experience sound on pedal steel and baritone guitar.
The Honky Tonk Experience have also shared the stage with an extensive list of national acts. These include Travis Tritt, The Oak Ridge Boys, Marty Stuart, John Anderson, Ronnie McDowell, BR5-49, Dale Watson, Webb Wilder and Junior Brown.

Ruth Wyand: Momas Got the Blues

Ruth Wyand: Moma's Got the Blues

Jun 30, 7:30pm - Jun 30, 9:30pm

Historic Masonic Theatre and Masonic Amphitheatre
510 Main Street
Clifton Forge, VA  24422 Map

RUTH WYAND: Moma's Got the Blues
Saturday, June 30 at 7:30pm
In the John E. Hillert Auditorium
Tickets: $20/18/15

Ruth Wyand's performance blew audiences away during our Clifton Forge Blues Festival. She returns to help us celebrate our birthday with a musical journey through the music she knows so well.

Mama's Got The Blues' is a multimedia production by blues guitarist/singer/songwriter Ruth Wyand and filmmaker Jean Antolini. The show features a live onstage musical score by Wyand while using film footage designed by Antolini projected on a screen behind the musician.

In this merging of film and live music Wyand and Antolini take the audience on a musical journey with a radio like experience at the show's opening then sets out exploring the Women who helped shape America's rich Blues history.

Wyand plays the songs of Women Blues Artist from the early 1900's to the present who have blazed the trail of blues, jazz and rock, and roll. The songs of Ma Rainey, Bessie Smith, Memphis Minnie, Nina Simone, Billy Holiday up to Bonnie Raitt plus a few others that have been overlooked and forgotten throughout history.

What people are saying...

“Mama's Got the Blues is a seamless blend of visual media and live music dedicated to the evolution of America's most influential musical genre. The show is perfectly paced and takes little time to engage the audience in the humor, sorrow, strength and resilience of the women who shared their everyday life experiences through the blues. Wyand's down-to-earth narrative, singing and guitar playing and Antolini’s use of archival footage and photographs ensure that the audience is treated to a celebration of musical history rather than an educational exercise. At the end of the show, I not only came away with an appreciation of what these women had accomplished but also an appreciation of what a versatile interpreter of the blues Ruth Wyand really is”.
.... Doug Snelling Bay of Plenty Blues Society Gisborne NZ



“These women are spreading the news on what powerful women had to go through in the past to express themselves. If you can get on the box car of blues that Ruth & Jean have to share, don't miss the train”.
