Willie, Waylon, Johnny Highwayman Tribute
20 Mississaga Street West
Orillia, ON L3V 3A6
In 1984 Johnny Cash was taping a CBS Christmas special in Montreux Switzerland. His guests for the show besides June Carter Cash were Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Waylon Jennings and his wife Jessie Colter. The Highwaymen were born. Never before in country music had a recording group of such country superstars existed. Waylon and Johnny (and June) are no longer with us but their music lives on.
They are joined by Willie Nelson impersonator Guy Melanson who lends his excellent vocal and instrumental talents to the show. These three are the Highwaymen road show and are backed by their excellent 5 piece band.
Held in the G.L. Auditorium of the Orillia Opera House.
