Singer-songwriters Robert Burke Warren and Casey Noel will trace the life of Johnny Cash in words and music as the Friends of the Library Sunset Signature Series returns to the historic Sunset Theater in downtown Asheboro.  Warren is author of Cash on Cash: Interviews and Encounters with Johnny Cash. In the book, Warren charts the evolution of Cash and his music through interviews Cash has given from the 1950s through the early 2000s, and provides his own commentary on Cash’s words.  During the performance, Warren will read from his book and perform some of Cash’s songs with Noel.  Warren is a published novelist, educator, music journalist based in the Catskill Mountains of New York. His music writing has appeared in Vulture, Paste, and Salon, among other publications.  As a performer, he played bass for the Queens, New York, based garage rock band, The Fleshtones, and has forged a career on his own as a singer-songwriter. Noel is a North Carolina-based singer-songwriter. A single entitled “Page 52" off her 2020 EP Not Just Pretty Words was added to Spotify’s Emerging Americana Playlist.
