Paradigm of Time Tour: Thomas Gabriel, grandson of Johnny Cash; local guests Juliet Gobert and Homer Wills
Thomas Gabriel - known as TG - just played Folsom Prison with his band, for the historic 50th anniversary of Johnny Cash's gig there. His voice has an uncanny resemblance to his grandfather's, whether singing Johnny's classics, or his own well-produced originals on hard living and lessons learned.

About The Event
T.G. - as those closest to him call him - is the oldest grandchild of Johnny Cash. Predominately raised on the road, he often dreamed of a life as a successful career musician. When he was young, his grandfather would call him onstage, to sing “When the Saints Go Marching In.”
At 21, he was in the studio trying out his voice. Johnny would say, “Son, you sound a lot like I did when I was younger; work on those vocals.”
Johnny also insisted that T.G. have a back-up option, so he went to the police academy, and into police work.
Life and adversity has kept him from pursuing his dreams, but he has regained control over his life, and is back in the world that holds so much potential for him.
Along with his voice that sounds so much like his grandfather’s, he brings a wealth of stories from his memories of his childhood and of growing up a member of such an iconic family.
