St. Louis based artist Brian Owens continues his classic soul series with the music of Johnny Cash on Thursday, August 7 at the Sheldon Concert Hall. Joining Brian will be Erin Bode as well as Double Date, BinG! 2014 mixed quartet champs. The show is sponsored by Sterling Bank and proceeds from the show will go directly to The Little Bit Foundation.
“I immediately knew I wanted to include Johnny Cash in the Masters series, but after I announced it I started to get concerned about how I would honor this American music icon,” says Owens. “I can channel Marvin and Ray and Otis, but Johnny… and then it hit me: I don’t have to channel him. I connect with Cash because he is a master storyteller. The greatest honor I can give is to tell the stories with my voice.”
Brian continues his partnership with the Little Bit Foundation, a non profit that works in the St. Louis public schools to provide basic needs for children at or below the poverty level. Patrons who bring donations of new children's sock and/or underwear for Little Bit inventory will receive a $5-per-ticket voucher for a future Masters Series show.
