  • Rosanne Cash Performs This Tuesday
    With the story of her father playing down the street, the timing couldn’t be more perfect for Rosanne Cash.  In the 1980s, Cash had a string of chart-topping singles which crossed several genres, signaling her break away from her country music past. Since she has earned nine Grammy Nominations and one win for her 1985 hit “I Don’t Know Why You Don’t Want Me.”  Now, in a one-night only engagement, Cash will be performing as a duo with the Grammy-award winning musician, producer and songwriter – John Levanthal – who also happens to be her husband!  Don’t miss Rosanne Cash with special guests Mandolin Orange, Tuesday, Dec. 6, at 7:30 p.m., in the McGlohon Theater at Spirit Square.

What are you looking forward to this week?
