About The Man in Black – A Tribute to Johnny Cash
With his striking resemblance, spot-on mannerisms and deep baritone voice, Shawn Barker embodies the character and spirit of Johnny Cash.
From singing in church, playing drums in the school marching band or singing in cover bands and at coffee houses, music and entertainment has always been in Shawn’s blood. In 2004, Shawn auditioned for the part of Elvis Presley in the Broadway production of “Million Dollar Quartet.” The director, Floyd Mutrux (“Dick Tracy,” “American Hot Wax”), recognized Shawn’s unique talent and asked him to audition for the part of Johnny Cash. Barker agreed and was instantly cast in the part.
Since then, Barker has performed his unmatchable tribute to Johnny Cash all over the world, touring in Australia, Europe, Canada and across the United States.
Look for Barker to bring all Johnny Cash’s hits to life, including “I Walk the Line,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” “Ring of Fire” and many more. Join us for this outstanding tribute show at The Meadows on Friday, September 18 at 8 p.m. Tickets start at just $10 and are available at Ticketmaster.com.
