About the Event

“One of the most ambitious and literary songwriters of her generation” (Rolling Stone), Rosanne Cash is America’s foremost musical woman of letters, an incisive artist whose poignant and distinctive vocals turn every song into a revelatory tale. A singular artist at the peak of her interpretive powers, Cash has earned four Grammys®—three for The River & The Thread (2014, Blue Note)—and 12 additional nominations. Among many other accolades, in 2021 she became the first woman to receive the Edward MacDowell Medal for music composition. Her acclaimed 2010 memoir, Composed, has been described by the Chicago Tribune as “one of the best accounts of an American life you’ll likely ever read.” Cash was recently elected as an Honorary American member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters. 

Cash and her husband John Leventhal, the six-time Grammy-winning songwriter, producer, and lifelong creative partner, launched RumbleStrip Records, an initiative to reexamine and reissue her early work, originally released on Columbia / Sony Music and beyond. The label is currently celebrating the 30th anniversary of Cash’s landmark album The Wheel with a deluxe remastered version and first vinyl pressing, and Leventhal’s debut solo album, Rumble Strip (2024), released 50 years into his remarkable career. Cash and Leventhal are currently writing music for the Broadway production of Norma Rae. 

“I consider artists to be in the service industry—the premier service industry for the heart and soul. I am curious to a pathological degree and the Sword of Time hangs over me, and those two things—curiosity and the hourglass—make me feel more urgent than ever to connect, to find community, and to create. It doesn’t matter what the world thinks, it only matters that what is unsaid and what is unseen is given form and has a voice.” — Rosanne Cash
