Sign up for the latest about American Songbook.
An extraordinary songwriter, a witty storyteller, a fiercely loving activist, and a sensitive interpreter of songs, Rosanne Cash explores the impressive arc of her artistry during this special evening. An heir to country music royalty, she is a revolutionary that has never lost reverence for the traditions she inherited, a literary songwriter who has never lost sight of her role as plainspoken American storyteller. Cash helped create and master the “new country” of the 1980s only to transcend it once more with a series of deeply personal, critically acclaimed albums, the last of which—2013’s The River & the Thread—won three Grammy Awards. Experience Cash’s one-of-a-kind show, an honest reflection of a one-of-a-kind life, at the beautiful Rose Theater.
“Cash, a literate, thoughtful lyricist, understands the virtues of directness and simplicity.”– Telegraph (U.K.)
“Stylishly contemporary and embedded with emotional complexity, yet also wise to tradition…the very embodiment of a woman owning her desires and laying out her limits, summoning a combination of rocking attitude, confessional clarity and deep self-knowledge that felt utterly new in her format, and would prove influential for years to come.”– NPR, from The 150 Greatest Albums Made By Women
