Ring of Fire: The Music of Johnny Cash

David Lutken, star of the hit show Woody Sez, returns to lead a musical mosaic of the life and career of Johnny Cash – a dark, driving, and exuberant ride along his nostalgic track of family, music, humor, tragedy, colorful characters, sins, and redemption. Songs like "Folsom Prison Blues," "Hey Porter," "Far Side Banks of Jordan," "Country Boy," "Sunday Morning Coming Down," "I’ve Been Everywhere," and "I Walk the Line" tell the story not just of the "Man in Black" but also his muses and musings, too: the sidetracks, branch lines, backwoods, and wide open road of an American music icon.
