Rosanne Cash performs at Dominican University
Join us October 2nd at 7:30pm to see Rosanne Cash, called “one of the most compelling figures in popular music” by the Library of Congress. Rosanne Cash is part of country music’s legendary Cash and Carter families and she charted 21 Top 40 country singles, including 11 Number Ones. Her highly-acclaimed, multi Grammy-winning album, The River and the Thread, hailed by Newsweek as “the work of a lifetime,” is a kaleidoscopic examination of the geographic, emotional, and historic landscape of the American South. The album's unique sound, which draws from country, Delta blues, gospel, Appalachian folk and rock, reflects the soulful mix of music that traces its history to the region.
