CASH: Music, Legacy, & Redemption
“The concert was relaxing, and brought back a lot of memories of my childhood, listening to Cash and having breakfast with my parents before school.”
ADULT IN CUSTODY, OREGON STATE PENITENTIARY
Accoustic PERFORMANCE & STORYTELLING
“CASH: Music, Legacy, & Redemption” a musical/lecture describes the project through acoustic excerpts of select Cash songs, punctuated with stories of bringing a concert and art to adults in custody. The Folsom50 shows were designed to broadcast the experience of folks inside in order to educate people about the needs of adults in custody. After touring the prisons statewide, the band members have experienced the power of making a positive connection. The lecture is designed to cultivate an audience of students, artists, and citizens willing to advocate for adults in custody. We believe in the seeds that are sown when people are brought into a space filled with art, music, and ideas.
