Rolling Out The Red Carpet For Cash Writer Chadwick & Filmmaker Holiff
Acclaimed author Julie Chadwick has a London Music Week date. Chadwick shares tales from The Man Who Carried Cash (Dundurn Press). It’s the inside account of the drama that unfolded as the late Londoner Saul Holiff managed troubled country music superstar Johnny Cash from 1960 – 1973.
Holiff not only “carried Cash” during those tumultuous years, he was the man who brought Johnny and June Carter together. Julie Chadwick is at Brown & Dickson on Saturday, April 14, at noon.
“I was surprised by two things — one, by the depth and intimacy of how they interacted at times; when they worked well together they were so complementary that their partnership was a dream, and led to incredible highs and successes,” Chadwick says in a LondonFuse story about her book. “But independently, they were powerful figures with their own ideas and direction, and when they clashed it was intense and sometimes ugly.
“Secondly, I was impressed by Saul’s sense of vision. In his own business earlier on and with Johnny, he was consistently thinking outside the box.”
Later on Saturday, Chadwick is at a screening of Jonathan Holiff’s My Father & The Man In Black at the Jack Richardson Ballroom followed by a Q&A. It’s a fundraiser for London Music Hall Of Fame.
LMW 2018 winds up Sunday, April 15, with a 7 p.m. gala at the London Music Hall.
