Le Moyne College Hosts Johnny Cash 80th Birthday Tribute Concert

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (For Immediate Release) … On Tuesday, Nov. 6, at 7:30 p.m., the Le Moyne College music program will present a concert in celebration of Johnny Cash’s 80th birthday.
Host and Johnny Cash scholar Mike Streissguth will lead this multidisciplinary journey, featuring performances by Le Moyne College students, faculty members, alumni and local professional musicians.

Streissguth, currently serving as interim dean of arts and sciences at Le Moyne and a long time professor in the communication and film studies department, is the author of several popular books on Cash, including “Johnny Cash: The Biography” and “Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison: The Making of a Masterpiece.”

“Le Moyne’s music program has corralled a dynamite lineup of musical talent that is worthy of the spirit and legacy of Johnny Cash,” said Streissguth. “It’s going to be a memorable night.”

The Cash-themed evening will feature performances of “Walk the Line,” “Ring of Fire” and “Jackson,” as well as some lesser-known works, including “Rusty Cage” and “Far Side Banks of Jordan.” Following a meet-and-greet, audience members are invited back into the theater for a free screening of “A Gunfight” starring Johnny Cash and Kirk Douglas.

Don’t miss your chance to celebrate Johnny Cash’s 80th birthday in style. Tickets are $20 for the general public; $15 for seniors; and $5 for students and Le Moyne faculty and staff. To purchase tickets, visit www.lemoyne.edu/vpa or call (315) 445-4200.
