A long-time admirer of the legendary Johnny Cash, Gary Kehoe created a tribute show to the man in black.

Since 2004, Kehoe has toured throughout B.C. sharing the songs of Cash and on Oct. 18 at 7 p.m. at the Barking Parrot he will be performing his tribute show, The Life and Times of Johnny Cash.

The show is being hosted by Grandmothers for Africa and all proceeds will help African grandmothers raise HIV-AIDS orphaned grandchildren via the Stephen Lewis Foundation.

As of 2011, Kehoe’s The Life and Times of Johnny Cash show has appeared regularly in theatres, casinos, music festivals and rodeos right across the country. With over 600 performances it has become the longest running Johnny Cash Tribute show in Canada said Kehoe. With all of that experience Kehoe said he has received positive comments from audience members including people who tell him they never got to see Cash in person and now they feel they have.

Kehoe is also a established songwriter who performs under the name Black Bart, with five CDs recorded.

The Life and Times of Johnny Cash tribute show being held in Penticton will include lesser-known historical facts about Cash and a full audio-visual element.

Tickets for the show are $10 and available at the Lakeside Resort front desk.
