Tribehouse is a collective of artists and a bunch of us from Kelowna went down to Memphis in Mar. 2011 where we hung out at the Memphis Folk Alliance as well as took a tour through Sun Studios. This is where legends like Elvis, BB King, and Johnny Cash got their start.

The idea with the Johnny Cash Bash is to do a fun project where any artist is welcome to submit a Youtube video of themselves doing a Johnny Cash cover tune. This is a way to give some exposure to new artists along with a chance to connect with other musicians.

1. Decide on a CASH cover tune you'd like to do and post it here on this event (you'll have to click "ATTENDING" first).
We will post a complete list of the songs that have already been committed to in this description because it would be nice to only have 1 performance of a particular song. So just write something like "I'd like to do Ring of Fire". If you're the first one to say that, it's yours.

2. Upload your video to Youtube and include the word TRIBEHOUSE in the title.

3. Post the Youtube link to this event page or email tribehouse@nicogroove.com with the link.

On May 1 we will have the entire collection of covers available to view on our Tribehouse Youtube channel.
