Go Back City Clerk

The Spirit of Johnny Cash presented by the Claremont Opera House

WCNL  Country AM 1010/FM 94.7, Common Man Inn & Restaurant and Claremont Opera House welcome the return of The Spirit of Johnny Cash starring Harold Ford and featuring the Red Hot Cash Band at the historic Claremont Opera House Saturday, March 10, 7:30 pm. 

The Spirit of Johnny Cash name resulted from fans telling him that he was channeling Johnny Cash’s spirit. Random strangers would come up to Ford and say, “Did anybody ever tell you that you look like Johnny Cash?”  After hearing this for a while Ford started replying “You’re the first one today.”

This is what country music is all about - the music of Johnny Cash. The Nashville music press has hailed this show as a “must see to believe.” Harold Ford is incredible as Johnny Cash. He sings and looks exactly like the man in black - and it comes naturally.

Harold Ford bears an amazing resemblance to Mr. Cash, both vocally, and physically. Harold and his Cash Band have, in fact, been invited to play in Nashville, as the first Cash tribute band to be formally asked to do so, after Johnny's death. Mr. Ford stated he didn't intentionally set out to be a Cash tribute singer, but people are demanding that he does so.

Harold Ford is the only Johnny Cash Tribute Artist to be endorsed by John's Brother, Tommy Cash.  "You have my brother's voice. John would be proud."  Says Tommy Cash.  Tommy and Harold have also agreed to join ranks and perform together for select shows.

Mr. Ford's performance as a Johnny Cash Tribute Artist is exceptional, his striking resemblance to Mr. Cash in appearance, persona, and voice, elevates him to a class of his own.  The Spirit of Johnny Cash returns to Claremont Opera House, Saturday, March 10, 7:30 pm.
