Monty Cotton is


Tuesday 14th August 2018, Ravensthorpe Town Hall.

Monty Cotton, a seasoned performer and musician, woke up one day and realised he could imitate Johnny Cash.

From that point on, Monty has performed as Johnny Cash all around Australia and the UK including pubs, clubs, arts festivals, mine sites, corporate functions, breakfast radio, morning television and 'The Voice' Australia.

A Boy Named Cash - Johnny Cash Tribute Show showcases the greatest hits of The Man in Black as performed by Monty Cotton as a one-man-band, alongside a variety of pedals and instruments. This is no ordinary solo show – sing along and see it to believe it!
