Tommy Cash brings the house down

Tommy
Cash, younger brother of Country giant Johnny Cash, was headlining
this year’s „Country Music Festival“ in Haag am Hausruck. The
largest remaining festival of this kind in Austria was already into
its 23rd year.
Not
surprisingly most of the show was a tribute to Tommys older brother
with hit after hit by Johnny Cash, which the crowd was very familiar
with. As soon as the band got into the famous boom-chicka-boom sound
the audience burst into roaring applause. Only occasionally Tommy
sang one of his own hits, „Six White Horses“ being his most
popular. Another one was his rendition of „Some Kind Of A Woman“,
which he had recorded just recently, but was a hit for Faron Young in
the mid 1970‘s. Other titles not written by any of the Cash
brothers, but closely associated with Johnny Cash were „That Silver
Haired Daddy Of Mine“ with nice steel guitar intro, the dramatic
„Long Black Veil“ or „I Got Stripes“. Tommy was supported
this evening by the local „Ghost City Band“, consisting of most
semi-professional musicians. One has to applaud the musicians for the
supporting work considering the fact, that there was no possibility
to rehearse, because of the late arrival of the star. The group was
augmented by a second fiddle player and a steel guitarist. Very
effective were the twin fiddle parts replacing the trumpets in „Ring
Of Fire“. He repeated „Ring Of Fire“ as well as „Folsom
Prison Blues“ during the encore, partly while lacking more
rehearsed material, partly by demand of the audience. After 90
minutes the show ended. Even ten years after the passing of Johnny
Cash the popularity of his music is still undiminished.
