Singer-songwriter Rosanne Cash’s new show celebrates the release of her much anticipated new album, The River and the Thread. The River and the Thread (January 2014, Blue Note Records) is a collection of new original songs that connect and re-connect Rosanne to the American South, the place of her birth and the home of her ancestors.
Cash’s own thoughtful, genre-blurring approach encompasses country, rock, roots and pop influences. She has charted 21 Top 40 country singles including 11 number ones, received a Grammy, and has earned twelve Grammy nominations.
Rosanne recently appeared on: • CBS Sunday Morning - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4rQyr1oohbY • NPR’s Morning Edition - http://www.npr.org/2014/01/13/261398768/rosanne-cashs-mythic-southern-road-trip • World Café with David Dye – http://www.xpn.org/world-cafe/guests/item/3548-rosanne-cash
The eldest daughter of country music icon Johnny Cash and stepdaughter of June Carter Cash of the legendary Carter Family, Rosanne’s musical and family legacy is rooted in the very beginnings of American country music with its deep cultural and historical connections to the south.
On her 2009 album The List, Cash recorded twelve songs from the list of “100 essential country songs” that her father compiled for her, and instructed her to learn, when she was 18 and about to join his road show. The List received two Grammy nominations and won the Americana Music Association Awards’ 2010 Album of the Year.
In addition, her best-selling 2010 memoir, Composed, was described by the Chicago Tribune as “one of the best accounts of an American life you will likely ever read.”
The Boston Globe says of her 2014 album, The River and the Thread, “Cash comes full circle as a storyteller and singer of exceptional grace and grit. It’s among her finest work in a 35-year career, assured and at ease, and one of 2014’s first great albums.”
USA Today says, “A captivating and sometimes haunting album that's among the finest of her career.”
