Music legend Johnny Cash was immensely proud of his family’s Fife roots, and visited the Kingdom several times.
Cash Back in Fife is a new festival to celebrate his massive legacy of music and inspiration, and his family connection to the area; conceived and curated by Dean Owens, in association with Scary Biscuits Promotions and the Woodside Hotel.
The line-up is an exciting mix of established musicians and quality up and coming ones (most with a strong Fife connection), including Rab Noakes, Kirsten Adamson (daughter of Big Country front man Stuart Adamson), Liverpool’s Hannah Rose Platt, David Latto, Dean’s Celtabilly Allstars and Rezillos singer Fay Fife‘s new band, The Countess of Fife. Plus Rebus author Ian Rankin, talking about one of his favourite records by Fife musician Jackie Leven.
The festival is inspired by the spirit of Dean’s album, Cash Back (Songs I Learned From Johnny) – songs written, inspired, and covered by Cash. It’s NOT a ‘tribute’ festival. Artists will mostly be performing their own material, but with some classic Cash tunes mixed in, over the course of the weekend.
NEWSFLASH: Delighted to announce that Cash Back in Fife will include an exhibition of portraits of Johnny Cash, from the recent competition, organised by Go Glenrothes and judged by Rosanne Cash. Including the winning entry by Kelty artist Donna Forrester.
