The Bottle Boys Perform Johnny Cash’s Songs ‘Folsom Prison Blues’ & ‘Ring of Fire’ Using Beer Bottles as Instruments

The five Denmark-based members of The Bottle Boys (previously) recently showed off their skills by performing Johnny Cash‘s hit songs “Folsom Prison Blues” and “Ring of Fire” using beer bottles as instruments.

The songs are a perfect combination of great melodies and a really cool and down to earth groove underneath. We wanted to honour Cash’s style with a really simple look in our video, where we can just focus on what it is really about: the music!

Furthermore Johnny Cash’s songs let us experiment with different ways of playing on the bottles and lets us bend a lot of the notes to get closer to the way of singing all the blue notes. And in this video we even introduce a brand new thing: the bottle pluck. Even though it looks quite straight forward playing bass on the headrack and plucks on the table, the multitasking was quite challenging in the beginning. But we don’t play bottles because it is easy, but because it is hard!

The original “Folsom Prison Blues” and “Ring of Fire” songs for comparison:
