Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Rosanne Cash will perform the first-ever concert from her father’s boyhood home in Dyess. This concert will headline the 2021 virtual Johnny Cash Heritage Festival slated for Oct. 15-16.
“I am thrilled and delighted to return to Dyess to perform the first public concert from the living room of my father’s boyhood home,” Cash said. “This exciting benefit event raises funds to continue our mission of bringing attention to the rich history of my father in the Arkansas Delta and the New Deal-era colony where he was raised. This year, I am honored to share our family home in a special way.”
After successful music events in Arkansas State University’s First National Bank Arena beginning in 2011, the benefit event was expanded to a three-day heritage festival in 2017 and moved to Dyess. This year’s festival will be the first to be held virtually.
“We hope everyone will join us for the entire festival, which will include an international line-up of presenters and performers,” Cash said. “I have also invited several of my friends to join us for special performances. I’ll be announcing these performances in upcoming weeks.”
