Jim Yorfido & Marie Bottrell
Local Country music fans won't want to miss Johnny Cash and the Queens of Country
when the show comes to the Port Stanley Festival Theatre on Saturday November 9
@ 3:00 p.m. & 8:00 p.m.. In addition to Johnny Cash, this brand-new All-Star tribute show
also celebrates the music of Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton and Patsy
Cline. Produced by Bill Culp, the same creative mastermind behind the recent sold-out
Port Stanley theatre event Kenny and Dolly: Together Again, fans are urged to
purchase their tickets early.
Culp has assembled a notable line-up of world-class talent for this special event
including Jim Yorfido, best known for his starring role as Johnny Cash in The Sun
Records Story, the official, international touring show of the famed Memphis-based
label that launched the career of The Man in Black back in 1955. Culp notes "There's
a very obvious reason why Jim was offered that prestigious role in the Sun Records
show. Without a doubt, his voice is the best Cash sound-alike in the industry.
He has that same booming Baritone and each song is performed in the original Johnny
As a special bonus, Johnny Cash and the Queens of Country co-stars Canadian Country
music legend Marie Bottrell. With a total of 18 Top 40 radio hits, Bottrell is
an 8-time Juno nominee, a 2-time CCMA Female Vocalist of the Year, and in September
2010 was inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame. Marie comments "Tammy,
Loretta, Dolly and Patsy ... what a line-up! It's an honour to sing these timeless classics
and to pay tribute to these musical pioneers. I grew up listening to their songs ... I
loved them then and I still do today."
Joining in the fun will also be Pam Yorfido, who has won rave reviews across Canada
for her portrayal of June Carter Cash, alongside her real-life husband of 25 years,
Jim Yorfido. She comments "It's so much fun to do shows with Jim and Marie. We enjoy
ourselves on-stage and off, and I think that fun atmosphere really comes across
to the audience." Similar to Bottrell, Pam also grew up listening to Country music
and is proud to note that she "will be wearing actual Tammy Wynette stage dresses
in the show."
Songs performed in the show include Ring of Fire Boy Named Sue Stand by Your
Man Coal Miners Daughter Working Nine to Five Crazy Walkin' After Midnight
and many other favourites from Johnny Cash, Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton
and Patsy Cline. Culp adds "The evening will also have a few surprises including
some famous Country duets."
