Johnny's daughter Rosanne Cash plays a week later, on Friday, March 26. Her latest record, The List, comes from a list of classic songs her father gave her at age 18.
Elvis Costello comes on Friday, April 9 but beware, tickets are not cheap. Let's hope the $58 gets you plenty of old school stuff.
On Saturday, May 1, Lavay Smith & Her Red Hot Skillet Lickers play. Smith is known for "pin-up glamour and sultry vocals reminiscent of the great Billie Holiday." Celtic band Solas & Bearfoot play Saturday, May 8.
Tickets for the shows go on sale tomorrow here.
