Rosanne Cash will give an exclusive performance in her father’s boyhood home and YOU can be there thanks to Black Deer Festival and Visit Arkansas.
Arkansas State University hosts the tenth anniversary of the Johnny Cash Heritage Festival and Johnny Cash Boyhood Home Project in Dyess, Arkansas – and thanks to the virtual format, fans will be able to share this special benefit event around the world.
The festival, scheduled to stream Friday and Saturday October 15th & 16 (and then be available on-demand for ticket holders for a week), will feature exclusive musical performances by some of Americana’s leading names. Artists joining Rosanne Cash are Cedric Burnside, Jessica Coombs, Sheryl Crow, Rodney Crowell, Dailey & Vincent, Erin Enderlin, Vince Gill, Sarah Jarosz, Jamey Johnson, Keb’ Mo’, The Milk Carton Kids, Margo Price, Darius Rucker and Chris Stapleton.
“I am thrilled and delighted to return to Dyess to perform the first concert from the living room of my father’s boyhood home,” said Cash. “This exciting benefit event raises funds to continue our mission of bringing attention to the rich history of my father in the Arkansas Delta and the New Deal-era colony where he was raised.”
Many of the events will be presented well into the night or early in the morning if you are attending from outside the United States. But you will be able to watch any of the sessions and performances on your own schedule after they have aired – using your unique passcode – for up to seven days after the festival.
