MUSIC, LEGACy, REDEMPTION

Danny Wilson formed the band Luther's Boots to tour Oregon prisons as a commemoration of Johnny Cash’s legendary album At Folsom Prison. Cash empathized with the plight of the incarcerated and in doing so, remembered the forgotten through his music. The strains of his lyrics acknowledge human darkness, frailty, and the light found in redemption. The Cash prison concerts recognized a contract between performer and audience that is dignified through mutual respect. This idea resonated with the FOLSOM50 project creators as a larger framework for Cash’s musical and social/political legacy. And as such, they will revive this spirit through a series of concerts in Oregon Prisons during 2018.
