Ford and his band – which featured guitarists Sten Isachsen and Les Wheeler, drummer Peter Maine and stand-up bassist Mitch Throop, as well as vocalist Laura Lucy singing the June Carter Cash parts – made the most of the birthday by also celebrating the release of their debut CD, “Live in Concert: The Spirit, a Tribute to Johnny Cash,” which was recorded in November at Mohawk Valley Community College in Utica.
