DUBUQUE, IOWA— “Man in Black: A Tribute to Johnny Cash” will bring Cash’s classic hits to Mississippi Moon Bar on Saturday, Nov. 18, 2017.

Johnny Cash rocked the country music scene with his unique baritone vocals and acoustic guitar. His top hits included “Folsom Prison Blues,” “Ring of Fire,” “I Walk the Line” and “Ballad of a Teenage Queen.” Throughout the 1950’s and 1960’s, Cash released more than 100 hit singles, making him one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. The country music legend also went on to become one of the best-selling artists of all time, with more than 90 million records sold worldwide. Cash’s music has crossed over multiple genres, evidenced by his inductions into the Country Music, Gospel Music and Rock and Roll halls of fame.

Since 2005, Shawn Barker has performed his celebrated “Man in Black” tribute show all over the world. His high-energy performance recreates Cash’s iconic sound and signature style down to his acoustic guitar and harmonica. Barker’s show features hits from Johnny Cash’s entire musical career, including his duets with the late June Carter.
