Lake George Arts Projects Summer Concert Series: The Spirit of Johnny Cash
Harold Ford’s voice and physical resemblance to Johnny Cash are unmistakable, making him a natural as a Johnny Cash tribute artist. Harold Ford grew up in the foothills country between the Berkshire and Green Mountains bordering New York State. Raised on the old American pioneer songs, at the age of four, Harold began singing duets and harmonies with sister Dorothy. His father accompanied them on the banjo and Mother followed along with the piano. Music and a pioneering love of America became an integral part of his existence.As an adult, Harold spent many years driving the cross country roads and corridors of America, often with family in tow. Weaving his way north, south, east, west and settling in towns and villages along the way, Harold explored the back roads, country woods and the people of this great land. As a true American figure and artist himself, Harold Ford’s many experiences make him a storyteller in his own right and lend a deep identification to Johnny Cash’s music.
