“Hello, I’m Johnny Cash.”

With those words, the band launched into “Folsom Prison Blues,” a song that has come to epitomize the Man in Black. The lead singer later pointed out, “I’m Harold Ford, but I feel the spirit of Johnny Cash.” Judging from the response, I would say that many in the capacity crowd at the Fort Salem Theater were feeling the same way. Harold’s appearance and sound may be about as close as you’ll get to the real McCoy. This was almost like a hometown gig for him, hailing from nearby Greenwich – the same town that brought us Hal Ketcham.

The Cash Band was in fine form as well – bringing back the sounds of the Tennessee Three, right up to Johnny’s last years. Lead guitarist Sten Isachsen recreated Luther Perkins’ classic sound. Mitch Throop provided his energetic slap rhythm on stand-up bass, with Peter Maine driving the beat on drums while Les Wheeler did his part on rhythm guitar and harmonica.
