While remaining every bit Johnny Cash's daughter, Rosanne Cash has spent her career defining a distinct legacy of her own, often straying from strict definitions of country and sometimes exploring issues with deep psychological implications. Although never really estranged, their legacies emphatically reconvened on Rosanne's 2009 album The List, whose songs were drawn from 100 classic country songs Johnny advised Rosanne to learn when she was a teenager. Rosanne has been touring behind it in different formats since its release, preparing a follow-up and issuing a memoir. This show will be something new again. It's billed as her first performance ever with a symphony. Given Cash's adventurous spirit and the orchestra's versatility under Sarah Hicks, this should be special. Her repertoire will be drawn from The List as well as nuggets of her own, like "Seven Year Ache."
