Johnny Cash's Scottish heritage examined in new documentary

Johnny Cash's Scottish heritage examined in new documentary

A documentary about Johnny Cash's connections to Scotland is set to be aired on BBC Radio 4 this weekend (February 14).

'Johnny Cash Of Easter Cash' focuses on Cash's fascination with the small village of Easter Cash in Falkland, Fife.

Cash became fascinated with the village after being told about it by a random passenger on a plane, and visited it a number of times in his life. He also traced his ancestry back to 12th century royal Malcolm IV, whose surname was either Cash or Cashel, reports Spinner.

Featuring first hand accounts by Falkland villagers and Cash's daughter Rosanne, the documentary goes out on BBC Radio 4 this Saturday (February 13) at 10:30am (GMT).
