Rosanne Cash with John Leventhal

Beloved singer-songwriter Rosanne Cash will play a concert featuring music from her acclaimed 2014 album The River & the Thread which garnered 3 Grammy awards in 2015. The recording includes eleven original songs written by Cash and her longtime collaborator—and husband—John Leventhal, who also served as producer, arranger, and guitarist. The River & the Thread evokes the American South’s rich landscape—physical, musical, and emotional—and examines the indelible impressions it’s made on our collective culture and on Cash, who was born in Memphis, Tennessee. The songs portray a multigenerational cast of characters—from a Civil War soldier off to fight in Virginia, to a New Deal-era farmer in Arkansas, to a present-day couple in Alabama. While Cash and Leventhal were inspired by the many musical styles associated with the South—Delta blues, gospel, Appalachian folk, country, rock, and others—the resulting collection of songs is contemporary. Cash, who has just been inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, has recorded fifteen albums and has charted twenty-one top forty country singles, eleven of which reached number one. A Chicago Tribune reviewer describes Composed, her 2010 memoir, as “one of the best accounts of an American life you will likely ever read.”
