Biography

JIM YORFIDO as “A Man In Black”

JIM YORFIDO as “A Man In Black” (Johnny Cash – The Man In Black). Tammy Wynette and June Carter shows available also.
Canadian, Jim Yorfido – Best known for his starring role as Johnny Cash in The Sun Records Show, the official international touring show of the famed Memphis based label that launched the career of the Man in Black in 1955. It’s a role Yorfido has been honing for about nine years; the latest part of a music career that spans more than four decades, since his teenage years growing up in Welland, Ontario Canada. While he’s always included some Johnny Cash songs in his repertoire –“Folsom Prison Blues” is a favorite – he really got into the swing of things when he joined The Sun Records Story. In his Johnny Cash show, Yorfido also includes some of Cash’s later recordings with producer Rick Rubin, particularly his cover of ‘Nine Inch Nails’, “Hurt.” Johnny’s covers of modern rock offerings exposed him to another generation of music lovers; a fact reflected in the age mix of Yorfido’s audiences.
