Event Details

“Walk the Line” breaks new ground as a day-long Cash-inspired festival

Featuring 
New Country Rehab, Christa Couture, Andrew Queen, Julian Taylor, Kristine Schmitt, David Wilton & many more

With a new name, expanded programming, and a broader creative focus, the popular annual Johnny Cash tribute show at Port Hope’s Capitol Theatre seeks to break new ground in its fifth year—as community festival, dedicated to the spirit of Johnny Cash.

“Last year’s show was a sell-out,” says artistic director David Newland, “but we had to keep building to stay fresh for year five. To me, that meant doing more than playing Johnny’s hits.”

Tickets:
Full day $50
Evening concert only $35
Afternoon workshops only $20
Kids 14 and under (afternoon only) $5
Kids 5 and under (afternoon only) Free

The annual shows have raised much-needed funds for Green Wood Coalition over the years, but equally importantly, have shared a message of hope, advocacy and creativity.

“Walk the Line is about the way Johnny lived: standing up for the less fortunate, breaking boundaries, living honestly and authentically,” says Green Wood Coalition outreach worker, David Sheffield, who introduced the Cash tribute concept five years ago. 

This year’s programming includes afternoon performance and workshop sets, upstairs at the Capitol, as well as the annual evening revue show in the theatre. For the first time, performers will play selections of their own material along with Johnny Cash’s famous hits.

Newland says it’s a natural evolution. “Last year, our audience told us they really wanted to hear more from each artist. So we brought back Christa Couture, Kristine Schmitt and David Wilton, and we’re giving them more stage time—as well as the chance to share their own stuff.”

This year’s new acts reflect Cash’s diverse influence. Says Newland, “We’re introducing Julian Taylor, who’s going to open people’s ears with a touch of urban soul. And we’re honouring Johnny’s outlaw streak with New Country Rehab, the hottest country-roots act going. They play the way I think Johnny would play if he were starting out today.”

Also for the first time, Walk the Line will offer a deeper exploration of Cash’s work and ideals. Afternoon workshops (hosted by Candace Shaw) will include “Angels and Demons,” a nod to Johnny Cash’s struggles with poverty, addiction, and the law, and “Country, Folk, & Roots”. There’s even a Cash For Kids workshop from Campbellford performer Andrew Queen, another returning artist.
