Roseanne Cash coming to Bucknell

Tickets go on sale Friday

LEWISBURG —  Rosanne Cash with John Leventhal will perform at Bucknell University on May 16 at 7 p.m. at the Weis Center for the Performing Arts. The concert is part of the commencement weekend festivities.

The eldest daughter of country music icon Johnny Cash and stepdaughter of June Carter Cash of the legendary Carter Family, Cash’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.

Encompassing country, rock, roots and pop influences, she has charted 21 Top 40 country singles including 11 number ones. In addition to receiving a Grammy, she has earned 12 Grammy nominations.

On her 2009 album “The List,” Cash recorded 12 songs from the list of “100 essential country songs” 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.”

Cash’s new show celebrates the release of her latest album, “The River and the Thread,” a collection of new original songs that connect and re-connect her to the American South, the place of her birth and the home of her ancestors. The collection was written with her collaborator, musical director and husband, John Leventhal.
