"Johnny Cash wanted to come to Newport. He was married to June Carter and brought Mother Maybelle Carter to the festival with him. Johnny was a big star, but for Newport he appeared for what every artist got: $50. In addition to June and Mother Maybelle, he brought along two new artists he was interested in: Kris Kristofferson and Cajun fiddler Doug Kershaw. Johnny’s actions personified the respect that so many artists had for what we were doing at Newport in the sixties.” - George Wein
