Like the phoenix from the ashes arose a man in black wearing a cowboy hat.

Teary-eyed Johnny Cash-lovers gazed adoringly and whoops accompanied high-energy jigging.

Of course, the faux Johnny could not mimic the charisma of the original and it was perhaps a good thing he didn't try, but his gravel voice was pitch-perfect and the experience of hearing live versions of those songs magical.

The playlist was disappointing, with foot-stomping anthems like Ring Of Fire and Folsom Prison Blues wasted at the start, leaving the weaker Orange Blossom as the finale.

However, Keeping It Cash is doing a fine job at maintaining the memory of an iconic man in black.
