About the Performers
Rosanne Cash made her Rubin Museum of Art debut on October 5, 2004, four days after the museum opened. In the course of her first six concerts at the museum, Cash debuted songs that were to make up her much-lauded 2006 album Black Cadillac. Her guests have included Elvis Costello, Joe Henry, Loudon Wainwright, Marc Cohn, Steve Earle, and Sandra Bernhard. She has recorded eleven number one singles, blurring the genres of country, rock, roots, and pop. She has received one Grammy Award and twelve Grammy nominations, among other awards and accolades, including an honorary doctorate from Memphis College of Art. A prolific writer, she has authored Bodies of Water, Penelope Jane: A Fairy’s Tale, and her recent memoir Composed, and her prose and essays have appeared in the New York Times, The Oxford-American, New York Magazine, Newsweek, Rolling Stone and various other publications. Her last record album, The List, won the Americana Music award for Best Album of the year and was a critical and commercial success. She has just recorded an album of songs (featuring Cory Chisel on one of the tracks) about Southern people, places and themes with her longtime life partner and musical collaborator, John Leventhal.
Like notable musicians before him, singer-songwriter Cory Chisel forged his first connection to the power of song through the music he heard - and made - in church. His father was a Baptist minister, his mother played piano during services, and an upbringing surrounded by sermons and spirituals instilled in Cory the passion and portent of language and melody, and a fluency in the gospel's rich vernacular of loss and redemption. His debut album for RCA, ''Death Won't Send A Letter'' had him named by Rolling Stone as one of the “Best New Artists of 2009.” His most recent release “Old Believers” came out in 2012 on Readymade Records.
