Grammy-winner Rosanne Cash performs at Latchis March 8
BRATTLEBORO -- Grammy-winner Rosanne Cash will perform at the Latchis Theatre on Friday, March 8, at 7:30 p.m.
Cash is known by many as the eldest daughter of legendary country singer Johnny Cash. And like her dad, Cash also crosses musical genres that include country, blues, folk, pop and rock. But Rosanne Cash has earned acclaim worldwide on her own -- for her distinctive singing and songwriting. She has a Grammy, 10 Grammy nominations, two Gold records, 11 chart-topping singles and 21 Top Forty country music singles. Cash’s 2006 release, "Black Cadillac," was named to the top 10 lists of the New York Times, Billboard, PopMatters, NPR and others.
Rosanne Cash’s most recent album, "The List" became a best seller -- and it was based on the list given to her by her dad when she was 18 and preparing to go on the road with him for a concert tour. "The List" consisted of the "100 greatest country and American songs of all time" that Johnny Cash asked Rosanne to learn for the road. The album features 12 of those songs -- performed and including vocal duets between Cash and Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Jeff Tweedy (Wilco), Rufus Wainwright, and (on iTunes only) Neko Case.
Audiences and critics often comment on the deeply affecting power and emotion of Cash’s music. The New York Times wrote that Rosanne has: "A voice that blends one part heartbreak with two parts true grit. Ms. Cash has always had the gift of communicating the emotional texture of life as it’s lived from day to day, in a way that seems natural. The older she grows, the better she gets."
The March 8th Rosanne Cash concert is being presented and produced by Kingdom County Productions with sponsorship support from Vermont Public Radio, Rockingham Arts and Museum Project, Vermont Festivals, and The National Endowment for the Arts.
